The biotope is what remains of that complex of swamps, lakes, ponds and marshes that once occupied the valley floor of the Valsugana. Here there are perennial springs fed by groundwater, which allow the formation of peat and the spread of typical marsh vegetation (cariceti, water straws, marsh gentians, wild orchids, etc.). The fauna is also rich and varied, with amphibians and water birds in the foreground (mallards, moorhens, pigs and kingfishers). A small part of the biotope (1,660 square meters) is managed by WWF Italia as a protective refuge.


The provincial law (Autonomous Province of Trento) which established protected biotopes (areas of significant naturalistic, scientific and cultural interest) is No. 14 of 23/06/1986. In 1987, 287 were identified: of these, 219 are defined as being of local interest and their establishment and management is the responsibility of the municipality (municipal biotopes); the 68 most important are instead classified of provincial interest (provincial biotopes), and are the responsibility of the Biotopes Office of the Parks and State Forests Service of the Province.
