  • 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)

Other Site Characteristics

Río de típico régimen atlántico que transcurre por el bajo Aran rodeado de una vegetación de ribera en galería que se desarrolla en los bordes del cauce del río. El conjunto formado por la vegetación y el río nos muestra el paisaje típico de los cursos de agua de la Europa húmeda.

4.2 Quality and importance

Único río de carácter atlántico que conserva sus sistemas naturales fluviales en buen estado. Su extraordinaria singularidad recae en la particularidad de su vegetación caracterizada por alisedas con plantas de afinidad atlántica muy raras en Catalunya y en una fauna propia de los ambientes pirenaico-atlánticos.

5.3 Site designation (optional)

Los límites de este espacio han sido trazados de acuerdo con la cartografía topográfica y planimétrica de referencia, a escala 1:50.000, del Instituto Cartográfico de Catalunya, que es el instituto cartográfico oficial y competente de la Generalitat de Catalunya. Los mapas facilitados para formalizar la propuesta de este espacio y definir su delimitación, citados en más adelante en este formulario, tienen la misma precisión de detalles, y la misma calidad, que los mapas de la cartografía topográfica y planimétrica de referencia, a escala 1:50.000, que publica con carácter oficial el Instituto Cartográfico de Catalunya. Estos mapas son la referencia, si no se indica lo contrario, de los detalles de descripción planimétrica, topográfica y/o toponímica que se puedan dar en este formulario. La delimitación de este espacio tiene la finalidad de incluir en la red Natura 2000 únicamente el dominio público hidráulico, así como la vegetación de ribera (leñosa o no) y los herbazales húmedos no de siega, de acuerdo con la Cartografía de los Hábitats de Cataluña, elaborada en convenio entre la Generalitat de Catalunya y la Universidad de Barcelona.
