Mediterranean Taxus baccata woods

Liste hiérarchisée et descriptifs des habitats d'intérêt communautaire de la directive "Habitats"

Description

Woods dominated by Taxus baccata, often with Ilex aquifolium, of very local occurrence. This habitat type may have two origins: senescent phase of a beech wood or beech-fir wood, made up of clusters of Taxus after the fall of the tall species, surrounded by layered stands of beech-yew; residual Taxus stand with disappearance of the tall species, both above and in the proximity of Taxus.
Habitat sub-types included:
42.A72 - Corsican yew woods - Formations of Taxus baccata, Ilex aquifolium, Buxus sempervirens restricted to cool, montane areas in the Tenda range, the San Pedrone range and the Cap Corse mountains;
42.A73 - Sardinian yew woods - Taxus baccata and Ilex aquifolium woods of the Catena del Marghine and the Mount Limbara system.
In the north and centre of Portugal there are Taxus baccata relicts, sometimes in small isolated formations (Serras do Gerês and Estrela), that may be included in this habitat type.
