Calcareous and calcshist screes of the montane to alpine levels (Thlaspietea rotundifolii)


NATURA 2000 Code: 8120

Definition:

Limestone, marlstone or calcshist screes of the upper montane to alpine (nival) zones, primarily with vegetation of the Thlaspion rotundifolii, Drabion hoppeanae and Petasition paradoxi alliances.


Notes on habitat mapping:

The precondition for assignment of scree to this habitat type is the presence of vegetation of the syntaxa given above, at least in parts. The entire area of scree that is free of woodland and scrub should be included if considerable sections host the relevant vegetation. Scree which does not host vegetation composed of higher plants is not to be recorded. Stands of the Stipion calamagrostis and the Calamagrostion villosae alliances are only to be recorded from the upper montane levels upwards. Lowland facies should be considered under habitat type  8160.
