Land snails and slugs at the Natural Park of the Serralada Litoral (Barcelona, Spain)
The population of molluscs in Serralada Litoral Park (Barcelona, Spain, NE Iberian peninsula) was assessed, contributing to the conservation plan. A wildlife inventory was conducted based on fieldwork.
The data in this occurrence resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 164 records.
This IPT archives the data and thus serves as the data repository. The data and resource metadata are available for download in the downloads section.

Serralada Litoral Park covers La Conreria-Sant Mateu-Céllecs, an area of natural interest included in the PEIN (Plan for Areas of Natural Interest, approved in 1992 by the Government of Catalonia). Following on from this, in 2004, the Special Protection Plan was approved, establishing the regulations governing the park. The park is located in the central part of the Serralada Litoral or Marina mountain range, between the River Besòs and the Argentona gully, straddling the regions of El Maresme and El Vallès Oriental and covering an area of 4,715 hectares.

|Title||Contribution to the study of the terrestrial molluscs at the Natural Park of the Serralada Litoral (Barcelona, Spain)|
|Study Area Description||Serralada Litoral Park is mainly covered with woodland, although there are also sections of farmland and more open areas, especially in the middle of the park, which help increase its biodiversity.Pine and holm oak woods are the two most predominant forms of vegetation. Its bright pine forests of umbrella and Aleppo pine, on the Maresme side, contrast with the better conserved forest of holm oak, mixed with white oak, on the greener, wetter slopes of the Vallès side. Brush and scrubland are mainly found on the Maresme slopes, spreading over old vineyards and areas affected by forest fires. The few water courses in the park, fragile arteries running through the landscape contrasting with the dryness of the Mediterranean forest, are home to European alder, white poplar and hazel, mixed with reeds and plantations of black poplars and plane trees. These are vulnerable habitats, strongholds for the threatened species that find refuge in the park.|
|Design Description||Gastropod communities in various natural environments and conchological species of interest for conservation are also described. Several environmental aspects that determine the distribution and abundance of snails are discussed and management m.easures to meet their ecological requirements are suggested.|
The personnel involved in the project:
All specimens, shells or alive specimens, found inside the circle are recorded.
|Study Extent||7.400 ha of the Natural Park have been surveyed by means of 23 sampling quadrats with side of 15 m.|
Method step description:
- Information about species identification, number of alive individuals, and habitat at two scales is databased.
