Other Site Characteristics

Esta Zona Especial de Conservación integra un complejo lagunar de origen kárstico, localizado en la provincia de Albacete, en las proximidades de la Laguna de los Ojos de Villaverde y de la Sierra de Alcaraz. La laguna está originada por diversas barreras travertínicas transversales al río Arquillo, que represan de forma natural sus aguas, lo que confiere un alto valor geomorfológico a este humedal.

4.2 Quality and importance

En la ZEC encontramos lagunas someras de aguas estancadas y cuencas lacustres profundas con flujo permanente. Estas distintas situaciones son origen de una alta diversidad de plantas. En las aguas profundas, se originan bandas en las que se encuentran espigas de agua (Potamogeton lucens), miriofílidos (Miriophyllum verticillatum), nenúfares (Nuphar luteum) y Chara major. En lagunas someras destacan las formaciones de nenúfares y masas compactas de Potamogeton pectinatus.
