Abstract

Preliminary analyses aimed at the editing of a management plan for cane thicket (Phragmitetum vulgaris) in Colfiorito Marsh (Umbria - Italy) - Colfiorito Marsh is a wetland sited in the Umbria-Marches Apennine ridge at 754 m a.s.l., subjected, during the last decades, to many changes in land mosaic composition and structure, linked almost to man land use. Cane thicket (Phragmitetum vulgaris) actually represents the most spread ecosystem, tending to replace the original vegetation mosaic. The natural silting processes of water bodies and the socio- economic processes leading to the abandonment of wet and marshy meadows mowing are causing a quick expansion of cane thicket that is likely to determine heavy modifications of botanic and faunistic components. For this reason “Colfiorito Regional Park” has charged University of Camerino to develop a preliminary analysis to define the need to elaborate a management plan for the plant community dominated by ditch reed (Phragmites australis), determining its optimal status to preserve biodiversity. The studies carried out emphasized the need to actively manage cane-thicket and led to the formulation of a series of management guidelines.
