  • PF: for the habitat types that can have a non-priority as well as a priority form (6210, 7130, 9430) enter "X" in the column PF to indicate the priority form.
  • NP: in case that a habitat type no longer exists in the site enter: x (optional)
  • Cover: decimal values can be entered
  • Caves: for habitat types 8310, 8330 (caves) enter the number of caves if estimated surface is not available.
  • Data quality: G = 'Good' (e.g. based on surveys); M = 'Moderate' (e.g. based on partial data with some extrapolation); P = 'Poor' (e.g. rough estimation)

Other Site Characteristics

La ZEC desempeña un papel fundamental como corredor ecológico, actuando como elemento conector entre el litoral y las sierras cercanas.

4.2 Quality and importance

Espacio importante para hábitats de interés comunitario (Directiva 92/43/CEE), en especial hábitats de ecosistemas semiáridos (1430, 5220* y 6220*). Presencia de cuevas (HIC 8310) caracterizadas por ser frecuentadas por varias especies de muerciélagos y por presentar especies endémicas o de distribución muy restringida, como es el caso del coleóptero Ptomaphagus troglodytes.
