Other Site Characteristics

Complessa morfologia comprendente valli glaciali con le più alti vatte dell'appennino. Vistosi fenomeni carsici con moprfologie glaciali. Presenza dell'unico ghiacciaio dell'appennino. Presenti pascoli altitudinali e faggete. Chionomys nivalis è probabilmente specie separata

4.2 Quality and importance

Sito di elvata qualità ambientale per la ricchezza di habitat che determina lla presenza di numerose specie endemiche che costituiscono anche indicatori ecologici. Le faggete sono ricche di specie rare e relittuali. Numerosi gli ecotoni. Presenza di sorgenti reocrene. Elevata la qualità ambientale e buona la qualità biologica dei corpi idrici. Presenza di una popolazione di Rutilus endemica non manipolata. Elevati valori scenici
