  • 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

Presenza di un ecosistema naturale nell'ambito di una zona a forte impatto agricolo. Sono presenti numerose specie entomologiche tipiche di lettiera tra cui il coleottero cerambicide Aporopion costatum (Fhr). E' la stazione più settentrionale del coleottero cerambicide Drymochares truquii. Stazione isolata di Sorbus domestica.

4.2 Quality and importance

Dossi collinari (sabbie di Asti) con modesti dislivelli rispetto agli impluvi, con notevoli differenziazioni microclimatiche. Bosco di roveri, a cerro e roverella, relativamente poco alterato ed unico in tutta la vasta area del Monferrato (Astigiano) occupata dalle sabbie di Asti. Stazioni, a quote molto basse, di faggio.
