  • PF: for the habitat types that can have a non-priority as well as a priority form (6210, 7130, 9430) enter "X" in the column PF to indicate the priority form.
  • NP: in case that a habitat type no longer exists in the site enter: x (optional)
  • Cover: decimal values can be entered
  • Caves: for habitat types 8310, 8330 (caves) enter the number of caves if estimated surface is not available.
  • Data quality: G = 'Good' (e.g. based on surveys); M = 'Moderate' (e.g. based on partial data with some extrapolation); P = 'Poor' (e.g. rough estimation)

3.2 Species referred to in Article 4 of Directive 2009/147/EC and listed in Annex II of Directive 92/43/EEC and site evaluation for them

  • Group: A = Amphibians, B = Birds, F = Fish, I = Invertebrates, M = Mammals, P = Plants, R = Reptiles
  • S: in case that the data on species are sensitive and therefore have to be blocked for any public access enter: yes
  • NP: in case that a species is no longer present in the site enter: x (optional)
  • Type: p = permanent, r = reproducing, c = concentration, w = wintering (for plant and non-migratory species use permanent)
  • Unit: i = individuals, p = pairs or other units according to the Standard list of population units and codes in accordance with Article 12 and 17 reporting (see reference portal)
  • Abundance categories (Cat.): C = common, R = rare, V = very rare, P = present - to fill if data are deficient (DD) or in addition to population size information
  • Data quality: G = 'Good' (e.g. based on surveys); M = 'Moderate' (e.g. based on partial data with some extrapolation); P = 'Poor' (e.g. rough estimation); VP = 'Very poor' (use this category only, if not even a rough estimation of the population size can be made, in this case the fields for population size can remain empty, but the field "Abundance categories" has to be filled in)

Other Site Characteristics

o Site comprenant d'une part un important massif forestier (partim de l'Hertogenwald), en rive gauche de la Vesdre (entre Dolhain et Eupen) et d'autre part, des forêts de versant au long de la Vesdre, à Andrimont ou au bord du Ruisseau de Villers, entre Bilstain et Limbourg.

4.2 Quality and importance

o Hêtraie à luzule blanchâtre de Haute-Ardenne particulièrement bien représentée ;o Dans la Grotte des Surdents, présence d'un lac souterrain offrant un milieu idéal pour une microfaune aquatique particulière (crustacés...), desservi en nutriments par les sédiments accumulés et les infiltrations d'eau depuis la surface, via plusieurs failles ; grotte présentant une grande diversité de niches écologiques devrant correspondre à une biodiversité de qualité, observation rehaussée par l'absence de pollution et le bon état de conservation du site ; présence de nombreuses concrétions bien conservées et variées ; présence de remplissages argileux aptes à fournir de précieuses données sur la genèse et l'évolution de la cavité et de son environnement.
