Other Site Characteristics

The site consists of acid metamorphic igneous rocks. The major part of these are volcanic rocks of the eocene-oligocene. In a small southern part we find acid rocks (granites of the paleozoic). This area is covered by old forests of Fagus sp. There is a sparse appearance of Pinus peuce, scattered old trees and small young stands and groups-natural regeneration plots. The small Natural Monument of pure stands of beech occurs on the N-W part of the site. There are also open areas and grasslands as well as mountain cliffs and screes on the Gyftokastro peak (Hellas-Bulgaria borderline).

4.2 Quality and importance

Area of high interest on account of the endemic plant species and other plants with restricted distribution. There are also rare species of birds and insects. The central part of the site is a bear-habitat (Bears use this place in winter for nesting and reproduction). Forest Service has never use this site as a "forest management area", because of its beauty and virginity. They suggest to "manage" this area as a Natural Monument (an expansion of the already Natural Monument of 1.8 ha). The Greek Ministry of Rural Development and Food proclaimed in 1979. 1,8 ha of the site as "Natural Monument" (No. of Proclamation 200995/7950/79). The Forest Service of Xanthi proposed in 1994 to the Greek Ministry of Rural Development and Food the expansion of the "Natural Monument" to 3.209,3 ha. (No. of Proposition D 2859/28-1-1994). Concerning the fauna the quality of the site is indicated by the occurrence of the invertebrates Limenitis populi and Erebia aethiops which are the southern edge of extension.Concerning the wild growing plants the quality of the site is indicated by the occurrence of 5 important taxa. Among them, 1 taxa (Viola stojanowii) are included in the WCMC and/or European Red Data list, 2 taxa (Arctostaphylos uva-ursi, Jovibarba heuffelii) are protected by the Greek Presidential Decree (67/1981), one taxon (Stachys officinalis) is rare in Greece and one taxon (Silene waldsteinii) is Balkan endemic. There have also been recorded 6 species of reptiles and 2 amphibian species not listed in Annex II.
