  • 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)

  • 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

D'un point de vue géologique, le site comprend des terrains sédimentaires de l'ère secondaire (Barthonien surtout), avec des calcaires et des dolomies. Les gorges du Tarn sont particulièrement profondes. Forte fréquentation touristique en période estivale (activités de plein air : canoé, pêche, escalade, randonnée, etc...)

4.2 Quality and importance

Gorges et corniches dominant le Tarn dans le département de l'Aveyron. Ces gorges séparent le Causse Méjean du Causse de Sauveterre. La végétation est formée de garrigues et de taillis à buis et à chênes pubescents.
