Other Site Characteristics

Este espacio está limitado al oeste por el río Turia, al sur por el río de Camarena procedente del macizo de Javalambre, y al norte por el arroyo de la Cañada. Se ubica en una zona formada por retazos de plataformas tabulares de naturaleza carbonatada profundamente diseccionadas por el dispositivo de cárcavas y barrancos de incisión lineal que erosionan de forma diferencial los estratos más deleznables. Algunas de estas formaciones detríticas terciarias se corresponden con la zona central del cambio lateral de facies, dispositivo sedimentario típico de las cuencas terciarias, que da lugar a la aparición de estratos de yesos en este sector. Las zonas más elevadas, coincidentes con las muelas, se sitúan a una altura entre 1000 y 1100metros y descienden progresivamente hacia el Turia a través de depósitos de ladera y glacis cuaternarios hasta enlazar con los diferentes niveles de terrazas fluviales del río. La regularización de las laderas a partir del escarpe de los relieves tabulares está condicionada por el dispositivo lineal de barrancos con una alta capacidad erosiva sobre los materiales arcillosos. La aparición de estratos de yesos terciarios condiciona la presencia de formaciones de matorral gipsófilo de gran interés, que en ocasiones se mezclan con sabinares de Juniperus thurifera y en las zonas mejor orientadas con bosques claros de Pinus sylvestris. En otros sectores dominan un mosaico de romeral, tomillar y campos de cultivo de secano. Las actividades agropecuarias se centran en el cultivo de cereal y en el pastoreo extensivo sobre los pastizales secos y matorrales esclerófilos.

4.2 Quality and importance

Importantes comunidades gipsícolas, destacando la presencia de sabinares de Juniperus thurifera bien conservados en algunos sectores y en ocasiones en formaciones mixtas con matorrales gipsícolas.
