  • Group: A = Amphibians, B = Birds, F = Fish, I = Invertebrates, M = Mammals, P = Plants, R = Reptiles
  • S: in case that the data on species are sensitive and therefore have to be blocked for any public access enter: yes
  • NP: in case that a species is no longer present in the site enter: x (optional)
  • Type: p = permanent, r = reproducing, c = concentration, w = wintering (for plant and non-migratory species use permanent)
  • Unit: i = individuals, p = pairs or other units according to the Standard list of population units and codes in accordance with Article 12 and 17 reporting (see reference portal)
  • Abundance categories (Cat.): C = common, R = rare, V = very rare, P = present - to fill if data are deficient (DD) or in addition to population size information
  • Data quality: G = 'Good' (e.g. based on surveys); M = 'Moderate' (e.g. based on partial data with some extrapolation); P = 'Poor' (e.g. rough estimation); VP = 'Very poor' (use this category only, if not even a rough estimation of the population size can be made, in this case the fields for population size can remain empty, but the field "Abundance categories" has to be filled in)

Other Site Characteristics

Área de planície aberta, utilizada para agricultura cerealífera extensiva. Montados de azinho pouco densos, por vezes com cultura de cereal e pastoreio de gado ovino em regime extensivo. Zona percorrida pelo rio Xévora.

4.2 Quality and importance

Muito importante para a conservação de um conjunto de espécies com estatuto de conservação desfavorável. Uma das áreas mais importantes, a nível nacional, para a invernada do grou (Grus grus) e para a conservação da abetarda (Otis tarda).
