Intervention Area

The actions envisaged in the project Eco Compatible arise mainly in areas of the archipelago of Madeira classified as Natura 2000 areas or adjacent economic activities linked to them.

The Special Areas of Conservation (SAC – Natura 2000) covered directly by the actions of the project are:

Laurissilva da Madeira (PTMAD001)

Maciço Montanhoso Central da Ilha da Madeira (PTMAD002)

Pináculo (PTMAD007)

Ponta de São Lourenço (PTMAD003)

Ilhéu da Viúva (PTMAD004)

Ilhas Desertas (PTDES001)

 

 


 

Laurissilva da Madeira (PTMAD001)

Natura 2000 - Laurissilva ForestThe natural habits of Annex I “Habitats” cliffs with endemic flora of the Macaronesian coasts are in this priority area (1250); Low formations of euphorbia close to cliffs (5320) Macaronesian Laurissilva (9360).  The destruction of this habitat has direct effects on the species of flora listed in Annex II of the “Habitats” Bryoerythrophyllum machadoanum, Carex malato-belizii, “Buxo da Rocha” (Chamaemeles coriacea), Big-leaved Thistle (Cirsium latifolium), Madeira Bindweed (Convolvulus massonii), Culcit Fern (Culcita macrocarpa), Echinodium spinosum, Pride of Madeira (Echium candicans), Besom Heather (Erica scoparia), Madeira Stork’s Bill (Geranium maderense), Madeira Goodyera (Goodyera macrophylla), Hymenophyllum maderensis, White Madeira Jasmine (Jasminum azoricum), Oenanthe divaricata, Marsupella profunda, Madeira Sanguisorba (Marcetella maderensis), Madeira Shrubby Bittersweet (Maytenus umbellata), Black Parsley (Melanoselinum decipiens), Golden Musschia (Musschia aurea), Wollaston’s Musschia (Musschia wollastonii), Madeira Cheesewood (Pittosporum coriaceum), Madeira Giant Plantain (Plantago malato-belizii), Polystichum drepanum, Portuguese Cherry Bay (Prunus lusitanica), Brissemoret’s Stonecrop (Sedum brissemoretii), Climbing Butcher’s Broom (Semele maderensis), Madeira Moneywort (Sibthorpia peregrina), Madeira Squill (Scilla maderensis), Rock Mustard (Sinapidendron rupestre), Madeira Rowan (Sorbus maderensis), Madeira Betony (Teucrium abutiloides), Betony (Teucrium betonicum), Thamnobryum fernandesii, Killarney Fern (Trichomanes speciosum), Chain Fern (Woodwardia radicans).

Negative pressures will also affect the Trocaz Pigeon (Columba Trocaz), which is classified as near threatened status.  This pigeon is considered the ultimate planter of trees in the Laurissilva forest and so is closely associated with this habitat.  In evolutionary terms it is assumed that the very composition of floristic heritage of the Laurissilva is associated with the ecology and biology of the Trocaz Pigeon, which gives it great importance.

Other emblematic birds, whose preferred habitat is the Laurissilva, are the Madeiran Firecrest (Regulus madeirensis) having Less Concern status, Chaffinche (Fringilla coelebs) having Least Concern status, Grey Wagtail (Motacilla cinerea) having Least Concern status, birds of prey having Less Concern status and Sparrowhawk (Accipiter nisus) having Less Concern status.  Also making their habitat in the Laurissilva forest are the Lesser Noctule (Nyctalus leisleri verrucosus), the Wolf Spider (Lycosa blackwalii) and the endemic snail Plutonia ruivensis.

This site is also classified as area of the Natural Park of Madeira
