Holm oak of S. Fratello
Site type: SAC - Special Conservation Area
Code: ITA030022 - Hectares: 391
It is a mountainous area affected by more or less uneven surfaces whose altitudes are between 900 and 1300 m. From a geological point of view, the substrates are mainly represented by flysch, schists and gneisses. The bioclimate falls mainly in the upper subhumid mesomediterranean or in the supramediterraneo at higher altitudes. The forest vegetation is represented by holm oaks which in some cooler and humid valleys are enriched with deciduous wood essences, such as Ostrya carpinifolia. At higher altitudes, the holm oak wood is replaced by the beech wood. In the stretches with looser and more incoherent soils there is the cork wood. There are also frequent aspects of substitution of a shrubby type.
