  • 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)

Other Site Characteristics

Stazioni in quota di Myricaria germanica. Popolamento di Cypripedion calceolum in formazioni dell' ord. Vaccinio-Piceetalia anche con buoni rodoreti umidi con Parnassius phoebus, Colias palaeno e Aricia nicias. Nel sito è presente l'habitat 4080 "Sub-artic Salix ssp. scrub" con copertura percentuale pari al 5% e dati ecologici (rappresentatività, superficie relativa, conservazione e valutazione globale) pari ad A. Non essendo presente nella lista di riferimento della regione biogeografica alpina italiana è stato inserito in questo campo.

4.2 Quality and importance

Bassi versanti a lariceti con pino cembro, su rodoreto-vaccineti interrotti da valloni laterali e canali di valanga con prolungata copertura nevosa, ospitanti popolamenti di Betula pubescens. Ai limiti superiori della vegetazione forestale macchie di salici subartici (Salix glaucosericea).
