Ecosystem of the Plot


The soil biodiversity in this plot is complex to develop. Its exposure to the dominant wind and very intense sunlight in summer make life more delicate. Despite the predominance of a vegetative cover mainly composed of legumes like white clover, which promotes bacterial development thanks to its nodular nitrogen-fixing roots.


This is certainly the most chalky plot in the estate. It consists of shallow Colluviosols, mainly composed of lignite clay. The subsoil is characterized by a succession of layers of soft chalk.
