  • 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)

  • Abundance categories (Cat.): C = common, R = rare, V = very rare, P = present - to fill if data are deficient (DD) or in addition to population size information
  • 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); VP = 'Very poor' (use this category only, if not even a rough estimation of the population size can be made, in this case the fields for population size can remain empty, but the field "Abundance categories" has to be filled in)

Other Site Characteristics

cette vallée entaille des couches d'age primaire (essentiellement Cambrien) schisteux. Bon état général du site, mais l'on constate des coupes sévères de la forêt riveraine (coupes à blanc suivies de plantations de peupliers ou de résineux) Certains coteaux subissent aussi ces enrésinements. Nécessité de maintenir les peuplements feuillus afin de maintenir plusieurs espèces protégées.

4.2 Quality and importance

La vallée boisée de la Houille est un site très accidenté, situé à proximité de la frontière belge. Elle est très typique du plateau ardennais primaire. Elle est constituée de plusieurs groupements forestiers rares et en voie de disparition : érablaie à Dentaire à bulbille (seule station en Champagne-Ardenne), aulnaie riveraine à Gagée jaune (protégée au plan national), chênaie acidiphile.
