Other Site Characteristics

La commune d'Uccle au sud de la Région bruxelloise se caractérise par un réseau dense d'espaces verts. Il s'agit principalement d'anciennes zones forestières, conservées en grande partie en tant qu'anciens parcs autour de châteaux, de propriétés et d'instituts. Par ailleurs, une série de vallées humides boisées, et de zones agricoles ouvertes sur les plateaux plus sec ont été conservées. Ils font partie du réseau vert qui relie les espaces ouverts, souvent à grande valeur biologique, autour de la Région bruxelloise urbanisée, avec les espaces verts en milieu urbain, et présentent tous une plus ou moins grande valeur biologique. Important est de surcroît que ce réseau d'espaces verts s'intègre profondément dans le tissu urbain par le biais d'une série de grands parcs paysagers.

4.2 Quality and importance

Le complexe du Kinsendael est un des meilleurs exemples d'aulnaies humides qui subsistent en Région bruxelloise. Une gestion approriée y est pratiquée. Les deux zones boisés sont, par leur intégration dans le tissu urbain, d'une importance majeure (îlots verts) dans le réseau écologique. Elles sont d'une grande importance pour l'avifaune, notamment en raison de la proximité du plateau ouvert du Kauwberg, les grandes friches du Plateau Engeland et la vallée du Buysdelle. Cet ensemble d'espaces verts arborés et ouverts et des zones relais constitue un complexe d'aires de nourrissage essentiel pour des populations de Chiroptères.
