Other Site Characteristics

Affioramenti gessosi nella prima collina bolognese caratterizzati da doline, inghiottitoi e grotte (Grotta della Spipola, la più grande grotta italiana nei gessi). Fascia calanchiva in gran parte su argille scagliose. Boschi mesofili, xero-termofili, radure e pratelli xerici.

4.2 Quality and importance

Specie vegetali CORINE appendice K : Orchis coriophora. Specie animali: Coronella girondica, specie presente con distribuzione altamente frammentata lungo la fascia medio-montana e collinare. Specializzata ad habitat xerici. Scarse conoscenze sulla distribuzione ed ecologia di popolazione.Importantissime colonie di Rhinolophus spp., Myotis spp. e Miniopterus schreibersi.Nidificazione delle specie ornitiche degli ambienti calanchivi (in particolare Circus pygargus). Ricchezza ittica dei torrenti.
