An overview of the flora and vegetation in the Sierra Bernia – Alicante province

The study and summary serve as preliminary clarification for a construction project in this region for an earthship and permaculture site.

The Sierra de Bernia is an approximately 10 km long, northwest-oriented mass. To the southeast, its foothills end in Punta del Mascarat on the E. and in the Tárbena and Algar valleys on the W. The Sierra de Bernia has an average height of 900 m and reaches 1,127 m at the geodetic apex.
Geologically, it consists of an Aquitaine and Burdigali base, which is covered in the upper part by the Eocene. The more or less compact clay, marl and limestone are the materials that make up these soils.

  • Individual information is taken from the report: “Datos para el estudio de la flora y vegetación de la provincia de Alicante.- Pantas de Sierra Bernia”. here to the PDF Flora y vegetación de Sierra Bernia
  • Pictures, some of them own or a network search
  • Links are different in the individual languages, as there is sometimes no translation.I look forward to comments or remarks on the collection.



Zeit Arbeitsstisch mit Formularen

Give us our daily form today …

There are forms everywhere, actually the idea behind them was to channel and simplify processes. Many, especially the authorities, often do not understand this!
Anyone who lives in Switzerland definitely knows that! If you don’t lead an ordinary life then all the more! With children homeschooling, physical limitations and normal life, you can get around 40 to 50 forms a year! Together with all the necessary attachments, although everything can actually be saved on all systems, we fill up a federal folder a year.
I used to think that this is just authority. In the meantime we got to know some other countries and how it works there. Spain in particular has the reputation of being extremely complicated among Swiss tourists. Where does that come from, no idea ?! I don’t have a fraction of the effort here as in Switzerland. Why? You structure, channel, use forms in a targeted manner and do without the absolutely stupid data protection mania of the Swiss. As soon as information has no relation to a person, what is the point of data protection! In addition, there is a lot of simple but modern furnishings here. But the Swiss can learn a lot from that, a lot!
Back to the federal forms, I am now also sure that absolute uncertainty, lack of competence and lack of knowledge are always replaced by forms! Like the Swiss favorite pastime, you can blame someone else for your own mistakes!
But now enough blasphemed, I have to fill out the next form 😉
