Other Site Characteristics

Zonele functionale ale rezervatiei sunt in numar de 3: - zona de maxima protectie care cuprinde albia minora a raului Valsan si zona Cheile Valsanului; - zona tampon formata din albia majora pe o lungime de 50 km si Poienile Valsanului; - zona economica cu o suprafata de 8000 ha. Rezervatia Valsan cuprinde un nr. de peste 300 specii de plante si animale ocrotite. Altitudinea cea mai mare este data de vf. Scarisoara Mare, 2459 m.Altitudinea minima se intalneste la confluenta Valsanului cu raul Arges si este 314 m. Ca unitati de relief Rezervatia Valsan cuprinde 2 sectoare cu subsectoare distincte: 1.sectorul montan; 2.sectorul subcarpatic. Din punct de vedere geologic de la N la S s-au identificat urmatoarele formatiuni geologice: cristalinul getic (panza getica), gnaise separate de formatiunile sedimentare ale bazinului post tectonic Brezoi-Titesti si sedimente paleogene, neogene si cuaternare din Depresiunea Getica. In cadrul Rezervatiei Valsan predomina o altitudine cuprinsa intre 1600-1200 m. Au fost localizate 7 izvoare sulfuroase. Este singurul loc unde supravietuieste aspretele(Romanichthys valsanicola) o specie de peste.;

4.2 Quality and importance

Valea Valsanului este singurul loc din lume unde supravietuieste aspretele (Romanichthys valsanicola) - o specie de peste, relict tertiar, unicat mondial. Este cea mai reprezentativa specie din bazinul raului Valsan, unde este periclitat. Dintre speciile rare pentru flora Romaniei si care au fost semnalate in aceasta zona, mentionam: Dianthus membranaceus, Moenchia mantica, Ranunculus stevenii, Anagallis minima, Achillea crithmifolia, Typha shuttleworthii, Eleocharis corniolica.Aceste plante se dezvolta in pajistile din aceasta zona si sunt periclitate datorita pasunatului, uneori destul de intensiv. Plantele apartinand fam. Orchidaceae sunt considerate ca plante ocrotite sau periclitate pe plan european. In zona colinara a Rezervatiei Valsan au fost semnalate 6 specii apartinand a 4 genuri si anume: Epipactis helleborinae, Cephalantherea longifalia, Neottia nidus-avis, Orchis cariophora, Orchislaxiflora Lam. ssp. elegans, Orchis ustulata. Toate speciile de orchidaceae sunt putin raspandite in zona, dar nu sunt periclitate in mod deosebit. ;
