Calcareous rocky slopes with chasmophytic vegetation
Vegetation of fissures of limestone cliffs, in the mediterranean region and in the euro-siberian plain to alpine levels, belonging essentially to the Potentilletalia caulescentis and Asplenietalia glandulosi orders. Two levels may be identified: a) thermo- and meso-Mediterranean (Onosmetalia frutescentis) with Campanula versicolor, Campanula rupestris, Inula attica, Inula mixta, Odontites luskii; b) montane- oro-Mediterranean (Potentilletalia speciosae, including Silenion aurticulatae, Galion degenii and Ramondion nathaliae). This habitat type presents a great regional diversity, with many endemic plant species (indicated under Plants).

EU conservation status
Conservation status assesses every six years and for each biogeographical region the condition of habitats and species compared to the favourable status as described in the Habitats Directive. The map shows the 2007-2012 assessments as reported by EU Member State. Assessments are further detailed in the summary document available behind the link below.
