Other Site Characteristics

1.1 Situation Le site couvre une partie du vallon peu encaissé de ruisseau 'Welieschbaach" près de Fingig. 1.2 Milieu physique Excepté les fond alluviaux du ruisseau, la totalité du site est formé par les couches de marnes à Septaries du Lias moyen. La majeure partie de la zone est couverte par des sols argileux, faiblement à modérément gleyifiés, excepté l'extrémité sud occupé par des Sols argileux, non gleyifiés sur substrat de macigno et la vallée de la "Welieschbaach" formée d'alluvions. 1.3 Occupation du sol Les forêts occupent la majeure partie du site (69%). Il faut surtout mentionner les restes de forêts alluviales (1% de la zone). Les territoires agricoles, essentiellement des prairies, couvrent 31 % de la zone.

4.2 Quality and importance

Intérêts selon la directive "Habitats" La zone abrite cinq types d'habitats de l'annexe I. Les versants du vallon sont couverts par des forêts feuillues et notamment par la hêtraie du Asperulo-Fagetum et la chênaie du Stellario-Carpinetum. Dans une enclave de la chênaie se trouve un reste de prairie à molinie de haute valeur biologique. A mentionner également un beau reste de forêt alluviale le long de la forêt du 'Reifeswenkel'. Le principal intérêt du site consiste cependant dans la présence de la prairie à molinie, biotope devenu très rare au pays. Les forêts de la zone constituent un site de reproduction pour Myotis beschsteini et un territoire de chasse pour Myotis myotis.

6.3 Conservation measures (optional)

Principes de gestion L’intérêt principal du site est la présence d’un reste de prairie à molinie. Cette parcelle fait actuellement déjà l’objet d’un contrat d’extensification dans le cadre du projet pilote ‘Nature 2000’ du Ministère de l’Environnement. Les hêtraies du site devraient être gérées selon les principes d’une sylviculture proche de la nature. Pour la forêt alluviale, les considérations en vue de l'optimisation des fonctions écologiques doivent primer sur les considérations économiques.
