Biotipo

Fifty-seven hectares of the Reserve stretch along 3 Km of the coastal strip, up to the municipality of San Salvo. It’s one of the few parts of the coast of Abruzzo rich in dune vegetation and plants in danger of extinction. The sandy vegetation retains the sand thanks to a developed system that stabilize the bars. This is a landscape that has now disappeared almost everywhere. It is a precious heritage of the vegetation that characterized our coasts, therefore it is worthy of special protection. Natural systems, including brackish wetlands, have a “chaotic” structure and the relationship between organisms and environment are difficult. It is a biological system with a high internal thermodynamic equilibrium, which is the maximum contects of system information and the minimum contects of entropy.
