  • 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)

4.2 Quality and importance

Zona de montaña de gran valor ambiental que destaca por su singularidad geológica, al constituir un enclave silíceo en el conjunto mayoritariamente calizo de las sierras valencianas. Por esta razón, alberga el alcornocal más extenso de la Comunitat Valenciana, así como todo el cortejo de formaciones asociadas al mismo, en las cuales se presentan diversas especies endémicas de gran interés. Incluye además dos refugios importantes para murciélagos, la Cova de l'Onder y la Cova de l'Ereta. Así mismo, se ha detectado en la sierra la mayor densidad de águila perdicera de todo el territorio valenciano.
