Other Site Characteristics

L'area è prevalentemente interessata dalla presenza della piana alluvionale del fiume Bormida di Spigno e del rio di Vaderrno. Affiorano depositi alluvionali ghiaioso-sabbioso-argillosi. A causa del suo interesse ornitologico è stata istituita un Oasi Faunistica

4.2 Quality and importance

Il sito è una zona golenale in un'ampia ansa del fiume Bormida a ridosso di formazioni calanchive e riveste una notevole importanza sotto il profilo ornitologico ospitando numerosissime specie di uccelli di interesse comunitario ai sensi della 92/43 CEE.
