4.1 General site character

Habitat class % Cover

Total Habitat Cover


Other Site Characteristics

Rarissimo esempio di prateria umida, periodicamente allagata, alternata a dossi sabbiosi con prati xerici e boscaglia e a bassure acquitrinose con canneto.

4.2 Quality and importance

Specie vegetali CORINE appendice K: Typha minima, Orchis coriophora, Orchis palustris. RARE: Typha minima, Orchis coriophora. RARISSIME e MINACCIATE: Juncus subnodulosus, Lythrum hissopifolia, Riccia cavernosa, Oenanthe aquatica, Orchis palustris, Hottonia palustris, Hydrocotyle vulgaris, Allium suaveolens, Anagallis minima, Baldellia ranunculoides, Eleocharis uniglumis, Oenanthe fistulosa. Specie animali: Chalcides chalcides, entità olomediterranea, in regione legata ad ambienti costieri e del Contrafforte Pliocenico che presentano caratteristiche bioclimatiche e vegetazionali di tipo mediterraneo. Scarse conoscenze sulle distribuzione ed ecologia di popolazione. Distribuzione frammentaria. Chamaesphecia palustris: specie legata ad habitat palustri, di cui Punte Alberete e il limitrofo Bardelo costituiscono l'unica stazione italiana. Dicranthus majzlani: popolazione relitta, legata ai fragmiteti. La popolazione di Emys orbicularis del Bardello e della adiacente Valle Mandriole trova qui substrati ideali per la deposizione delle uova. Nidificazione irregoalre di Aythya nyroca.
