  • 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

Vaste ensemble au centre du massif du Plantaurel (chainon calcaire nord pyrénéen). Le site est localisé sur 2 domaines biogéographiques: 50% pour le domaine alpin et 50% pour le domaine méditerranéen. Forte, liée à la déprise pastorale et à une dynamique forestière spontanée élévée.

4.2 Quality and importance

Ecocomplexe avec intérêts multiples dus à une forte biodiversité (endémisme, limite d'aire, etc ...) Milieu souterrain exceptionnel (avec site reproduction 3 espèces chauves souris pour environ 10 000 femelles).
