Other Site Characteristics

Il sito include il versante meridionale di un rilievo calcareo, circondato da una piana alluvionale. Esso rappresenta l'ultimo lembo isolato del Carso Isontino e presenta notevoli esempi di vegetazione termofila mediterraneo-illirica sia pascoliva (landa carsica) sia cespugliosa. Nel sito si trova il limite settentrionale di distribuzione di numerose specie termofile.

4.2 Quality and importance

Ultimo esempio di landa carsica termofila verso occidente, è circondato da coltivazioni e da boschetti di robinia e oggi è in significativa dinamica verso un cespuglieto a scotano. Linteresse ornitologico è legato alla presenza di specie proprie di ambienti collinari e rocciosi (es. Corvux corax) o di ambienti mediterranei (es. Sylvia melanocephala) in stazione isolata nella pianura alluvionale. Pur sporadico, è presente Felis s. silvestris. La presenza nel sito di Helix pomatia è confermata.
