Other Site Characteristics

As comunidades predominantes (habitats 4050 e 5330) são formações arbustivas que se aproximam à associação Globulario salicinae-Ericetum arboreae, os quais são tipicamente urzais de Erica arborea / Erica maderinicola e faiais com Globularia salicina e Helichrysum melaleucum, inframediterrânicos a termomediterrânicos, sub-húmidos a húmidos, subseriais de Semele androgynae-Apollonietum barbujanae , mas que neste sitio apresentam uma forte influência do Oleo maderensis-Maytenion umbellatae.

4.2 Quality and importance

Este sitio revela-se de extrema importância pelo facto de se apresentar geograficamente numa zona de transição entre a vertente norte e a vertente sul da ilha da Madeira, o que confere características únicas às comunidades que se encontram neste sítio, nomeadamente a presença de uma comunidade de Erica canariensis (Erica arborea) que se enquadra tipicamente num urzal (habitat 4050) e de uma outra comunidade com predominância de Gobularia salicina, quase ausência de Erica spp.e forte presença de elementos do Oleo maderensis-Maytenion umbellatae (zambujal), que a aproxima dos matos termomediterrânicos (Habitat 5330). Os táxones seguintes: Davallia canariensis Erica canariensis Gennaria diphylla Globularia salicina Myrtus communis Polypodium macaronesicum Tolpis succulenta são incluídos na lista de espécies no campo 3.3 pelo facto de se constituírem como elementos estruturantes dos habitats presentes neste sítio, para além de todos eles serem táxones endémicos daMacaronésia, à excepção de Myrtus communis Polypodium macaronesicum, e Gennaria diphylla.
