Other Site Characteristics

É imperativo destacar que este sítio alberga tipos habitat fortemente fragmentados e ameaçados (habitats 5330 e 9320), característicos das cotas mais baixas, tendo sido os habitats terrestres que mais foram impactados pelas atividades humanasdesde o início do século XV até à atualidade. A par com estes habitats temos a presença de uma variante de Laurissilvas Macaronésicas (habitat 9360), i.e. laurissilva do barbusano, a qual se encontra na mesma situação de ameaça que os primeiros (habitats 5330 e 9320). Neste sítio são observadas genericamente comunidades que se integram no complexo de vegetação climatófila [séries de vegetação] denominado Mayteno umbellatae-Oleo maderensis sigmetum [série do zambujal madeirense]: 1) O clímax (Mayteno umbellatae- Oleetum maderensis) (inclui-se no habitat 9320) corresponde a micro-bosques ou matagais infra-florestais dominados por arbustos paleomediterrânicos esclerófilos, xerofíticos e termófilos como sejam Olea maderensis, Maytenus umbellata, Chamaemeles coriacea, Dracaena draco, e Asparagus scoparius; 2) O mato de substituição (inclui-se no habitat 5330) do Mayteno- Oleetum maderensis é maioritariamente, em solos medianamente profundos menos erodidos e solos agrícolas abandonados,a comunidade de figueira-do-inferno (Euphorbietum piscatoriae).

4.2 Quality and importance

Assegurar a sobrevivência a longo prazo dos habitats 5330 e 9320, bem como das espécies respetivas, em particular de Olea maderensis. Os táxones seguintes: Apollonias barbujana, Globularia salicina, Hypericum canariense, Laurus novocanariensis, Tolpis suculenta são incluídos na lista de espécies no campo 3.3 pelo facto de se constituírem como elementos estruturantes dos dois habitats predominantes neste Sítio, para além de todos eles serem táxones endémicos da Macaronésia.
