This paper reports the results of the BioBlitz organized by the Maremma Natural History Museum in May 2015 within the “Torrente Trasubbie” Site of Regional Importance. This activity is part of the public involvement events for the collection of scientific data that the Museum organizes on a regular basis. During BioBlitz 2015, data collected attested the presence of 652 different taxonomic entities, 562 of which were identified at the species level and 32 at the subspecies level. The remaining were identified at higher taxonomic levels. Thirteen alien and 4 endemic species were identified. Fifty three species protected by international or national laws and 17 endangered species were detected in the area. SIR Trasubbie is an extremely interesting area from a naturalistic point of view, but extremely vulnerable for its high dynamism linked to the torrential regime of the homonymous stream and susceptible to changes in land use in the surrounding areas. The data collected confirm the high importance of this portion of territory at the level of both habitat and individual species. The data collected in collaboration with members of the public assume an even greater value, as an activity carried out by the local community.

Abstract

This paper reports the results of the BioBlitz organized by the Maremma Natural History Museum in May 2015 within the “Torrente Trasubbie” Site of Regional Importance. This activity is part of the public involvement events for the collection of scientific data that the Museum organizes on a regular basis. During BioBlitz 2015, data collected attested the presence of 652 different taxonomic entities, 562 of which were identified at the species level and 32 at the subspecies level. The remaining were identified at higher taxonomic levels. Thirteen alien and 4 endemic species were identified. Fifty three species protected by international or national laws and 17 endangered species were detected in the area. SIR Trasubbie is an extremely interesting area from a naturalistic point of view, but extremely vulnerable for its high dynamism linked to the torrential regime of the homonymous stream and susceptible to changes in land use in the surrounding areas. The data collected confirm the high importance of this portion of territory at the level of both habitat and individual species. The data collected in collaboration with members of the public assume an even greater value, as an activity carried out by the local community.
