  • 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)

  • 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)

Other Site Characteristics

The site includes marine area characterized by islets, coastal cliffs, bays and beach, lagoons with sandy bottom and undersea reefs, caves. It is the only part of Croatian littoral where Kingfish breeds in eroded, bare coasts. The site includes National Park Brijuni, paleontological Special reserve Datule Barbariga and partly Significant landscape Rovinjski otoci i priobalno područje and Significant landscape Donji Kamenjak i Medulinski arhipelag. Lithostratigraphic units represented in this area are: Rudist limestones (cenomanian-maastricht - K21-6), Limestone and dolomite (lower cretaceous - K1), Limestones and dolomites (upper jurassic - J3), Terra rossa (tsQ2) (Holocene - Q2), Alluvial sediments (b-aQ2)/Soils: Loessivized and typical deep terra rossa, Shallow and medium deep terra rossa, Brown soil on limestone, Eutric brown soil/This area is part of the Adriatic carbonate platform from the time when the mesozoic and tertiary deposits have become surface on which began exogenous processes of shaping and process of karstification; western Istrian anticline, where the best developed are plateau; there are numerous cracks, karrens, sinkholes, bays and speleological objects. Predominate gentle slopes that prevent erosion of soil which leads to accumulation of terra rossa; the coast is formed by positive movements of sea level that started and still going on since the last glacial; After glaciation, there is a transgression of the sea level and Limski bay and other forms are formed; shallow marine shelf.

4.2 Quality and importance

- important site for Sandbanks which are slightly covered by sea water all the time - important site for Submerged or partly submerged sea caves - one of the six important sites for Tursiops truncatus in Croatia
