N35 Mediterranean and Black Sea soft sea cliff

new search

Coastal soft cliffs around the Mediterranean and Black Seas that consist of readily-eroded clays, shales and sands. Usually, they have gently sloping and often unstable surfaces with a mixture of open soil, pioneer vegetation, scrub and flushes influenced by percolating waters. This habitat is poorly known, and there is little information on its ecological and floristic features.
