Resumen

The Site is located on the northern slope of Jbel Toubkal, the highest mountain in North Africa. It includes a permanent river, Oued Réghaya, and further upstream a fresh and fast-flowing mountain stream, Assif n’Aît Mizane, each classified among the Sites of Biological and Ecological Interest of Morocco. The land cover varies as it descends, from woody steppe on mountain schist to a dense forest and Mediterranean shrublands overlooking the lower stretch. The rocky course of the river features water- and riverbank plants, innumerable cultivated terraces and orchards. This permanent river ecosystem, very rare in North Africa, is rich in wildlife. There are at least 42 aquatic or semi-aquatic plant species; 70 aquatic invertebrates, of which at least 20 are endemic to the locality; 90 species of riparian invertebrates, and at least 15 species of regionally rare vertebrates, such as the endemic threatened fish Luciobarbus issenensis. The social and cultural importance of the Site relates to local practices including a traditional irrigation management model. The Site is threatened by the presence of invasive species as well as by water abstraction and recreational and tourism activities. A monitoring plan is proposed for water quality, birds and other animal species.
