4.1 General site character

Habitat class % Cover

Total Habitat Cover


Other Site Characteristics

Presenza di un mosaico ambientale vario costituito da sistemi dunari antichi e recenti, con numerose bassure umide ed acquitrini, valli arginate e ambienti di foce. Le dune consolidate ospitano popolamenti di Pinus nigra e Pinus pinea con elevata presenza di elementi mediterranei che in certe aree si organizzano in cenosi forestali (Orno-Quercetum ilicis); nelle radure sono presenti discrete formazioni ad Juniperus communis e prati xerici. Le bassure interdunali sono colonizzate da cenosi igrofile (Eriantho-Schoenetum nigricantis).

4.2 Quality and importance

Sito di particolare interesse naturalistico dovuto alla molteplicità delle tipologie vegetazionali ed alla presenza di elementi floristici di indubbio valore. Interesse biogeografico, geomorfologico, ecologico, vegetazionale e faunistico; sito di nidificazione, rifugio e passo; sede di zoocenosi e fitocenosi con caratteri esclusivi. Unica pineta litoranea a pino nero; unico sito veneto per Testudo hermanni, probabilmente autoctona. Area di notevole importanza per lo svernamento e la migrazione dell'avifauna legata alle zone umide (in particolare Anatidi). Nidificazione di Ardeidi coloniali. Presenza di tipi e sintipi endemici, nonché di specie e associazioni rare e minacciate.
