are SPAs / SICs. They cover an area of about 4,372 ha. and are part of a large flat sloping area, the main frame of which is the enormous cone of the Cellina creek. This is a thick area of limestone-dolomitic limestone sediments that are mostly of pebble, gravel and small grain sand of fluvioglacial origin, whose formation has contributed to a lesser degree to the recent Postwürmiane floods. This means that the main impetus for erosion and subsequent deposition of these alluvial materials was caused by the Cellina glacial water, fuelled by the massive dissolution of the capsules from the end of the last glacial phase (about 10,000 years ago).
EARTH OF MAGRI
To the north, the site is in contact with the Piedmontese foothills of the Pordenone precipices, while to the south it extends almost to reach the line of resurrections that separate the heights from the low Friulian plains. The characteristics of the magredi, meaning "meager" lawn, are linked to the low availability of water and nutrients for plants. One of the main peculiarities of the magredi is in fact the lack of surface water due to the particular characteristics of the soil which is extremely permeable in the context of a region which, on the contrary, is characterized by high rainfall. This condition has favoured the affirmation of this vegetation landscape characterized by lean grassy shrubs that botanists call "edaphic steppes". This term refers to the fact that its presence is due to the nature of the soil (edaphic component) in antithesis with the steppes of eastern central Europe experiencing the continental climatic regime.
