Other Site Characteristics

Das Gebiet umfasst die waldfreien Hochlagen und Almweiden des Wechsels im Steirischen Wechselland und beinhaltet Teile der obermontanen und subalpinen Höhenstufe. Das Grundgestein zählt zur Serie der Wechselgneise. Die sich über 300 Höhenmeter erstreckenden waldfreien Matten rund um den sanften Gipfel sind auf jahrhundertelange Beweidung zurückzuführen.

4.2 Quality and importance

Aufgrund der räumlichen Konzentration des Lebensraumtyps 6230* am Ostrand der Alpen hat das Gebiet aufgrund seiner Lage am Arealrand und der Größe der zusammenhängenden Schutzgutflächen eine besondere Bedeutung für die Erhaltung des Lebensraumtyps.
