Other Site Characteristics

The site consists mainly of metamorphic rocks, marbles (thought to be former reef limestones) and in river-bed of sedimentary rocks, alluvial deposits (recent fluriatile deposits). In the area there is the large gorge of Nestos river with steep rocky slopes. Also, there is found a well formed riparian forest stands or groups of Salix alba, S. fragilis, S. ampexicaulis, S. elaeagnos, Populus alba, P. nigra and sparse appearance (individually) of Platanus orientalis and Alnus glutinosa. From a geological point of view the region belongs to the Mass of Rodope. The climate is an intermediate climate type those of the Mediterranean and the continent.

4.2 Quality and importance

The site includes suitable riparian habitats to sustain Lycaena dispar (Annex II) and Apatura metis (Annex IV) butterflies, but their presence is known only from bibliography. Equally important is the presence of the 4 species of reptiles region and 2 amphibian species of Annex ΙΙ. There have also been recorded 7 species of reptiles.
