  • 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)

  • 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

Vegetación mediterranea de Pino blanco con matorral de romero. Comunidades invasoras de cultivos abandonados en transición hacia estadios más evolucionados de encinar litoral. Franja limite superior del pantano con comunidades inestables debido a la inundabilidad variable de la misma. Fauna piscícola autoctona con Barbus haasi y Leuciscus cephalus. Destaca la gran variedad de mamíferos debido al despoblamiento humano de la zona y en parte al efecto barrera del pantano: Aguila perdicera, hurón, gato montés, gineta, garduña, jabalí, etc.

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.Este espacio está incluido en el 'Pla d'Espais d'Interès Natural' (PEIN), aprobado por el Decreto 328/1992 de la Generalitat de Catalunya. Su inclusión en el PEIN implica un grado de protección del lugar que no queda reflejado en el Apartado 5.1 del formulario, ya que la figura PEIN no está recogida en el mismo.
