Other Site Characteristics

A ZPE é composta por planícies onde se encontram as culturas extensivas de sequeiro, as áreas de esteval e os montados de azinho; pelas elevações quartzíticas das serras de São Barão e Alcaria; e pelos vales encaixados do rio Guadiana e seus afluentes, marginados por escarpas e matagais mediterrânicos.

4.2 Quality and importance

Área fundamental para a conservação da avifauna associada a biótopos agrícolas de tipo extensivo; presença significativa de espécies dependentes de habitats rupícolas.
