The spaghetti ( Hyparrhenia hirta
) is the dominant plant of these meadows. It is a species native to Africa but has spread to our latitudes in a natural way. Catalonia is its distribution boundary to the north. Given its area of origin, it requires some temperature conditions that only occur on the slopes of the sun. The community that forms is called sabanoid prat. The name comes from the fact that relatives of this species form savannahs on the African continent and the appearance of these meadows is very similar.
These meadows only last in time if there is any element that helps to maintain it, that is, if the conditions remain stable, it grows slowly that it ends up causing them to disappear, but it grazes the flock or produces periodic fires they are kept
From the point of view of biodiversity they are very interesting. The most abundant species are Hyparrhenia hirta
sp. (ribbon), Alyssum maritimum
(white heads), Convolvulus althaeoides
), Leontodon taraxacoides
, Foeniculum vulgare
(fennel) and Galactites tomentosa
(white calcid). Although they stand out, one can not speak of dominance of any.
It is necessary to take into account the effect of ruderal, introduced and / or bio-invasive species, and those that are not typical of the meadows that, although they increase biodiversity, can not be said to be positive.
From the point of view of the fauna there are present birds such as the bitxac. common, the kestrel or the partridge. the banknote, etc. There is a grasshopper and an exclusive whitish tongue
