Other Site Characteristics

Mt. Tzena belongs to the Axios zone and mainly consists of schists and limestone in contrast with the adjacent Voras Mt. which is mainly ophiolitic. Along with Pinovo it forms a mountain range with steep slopes and characteristic bare rock faces. More than 50% of the site is forest land and a relatively small percentage of it is grazing land. Accordingly, the main land use is forest management and secondarily stock raising.

4.2 Quality and importance

The alpine rock faces of Pinovo are very important for the chamois (a small population, the only one in the mountain range of Tzena, Pinovo and Voras) and raptors such as the golden eagle, vultures and peregrine falcons. In the lowlands there are well structured high forests of oak which form importantfeeding and nesting places for several species of woodpeckers. Inaccessible beech forests just below the treeline are also important for wildlife. The area has been, generally, well conserved because it is situated near the border and due to military importance most activities were until recently sustained. Concerning the wild growning plants the quality of the site is indicated by the occurrence of other important taxa. Alyssum doerfleri and Centaurea grbavacensis (motivation D) are included in the WCMC and/or European Red Data list. Androsace villosa, Arctostaphylos uva-ursi, Aster alpinus, Gentiana asclepiadea, Jovibarba heuffelii, Lilium martagon, Ramonda nathaliae (motivation D) are protected by the Greek Presidental Decree (67/1981). Carex ferruginea, Carum rigidulum ssp. bulgaricum, Gentianella crispata, Geum montanum, Rhamnus pumilus, Saxifraga aizoides, Silene saxifraga (motivation D) are rare in Greece and/or reach their extreme distribution limits in Northern Greece. Alchemilla indivisa, Alchemilla lanuginosa, Alchemilla serbica, Anthyllis vulneraria ssp. bulgarica, Arabis bryoides, Bruckenthalia spiculifolia, Campanula formanekiana, Cerastium rectum, Gentianella bulgarica, Minuartia garckeana, Paronychia macedonica, Pedicularis leucodon ssp. leucodon, Sideritis scardica (motivation D) are Balkan endemics. Geum coccineum finds its main distribution area in the Balkan Peninsula extending also to Turkey or Italy. Additionally it has also been recorded the presence of three species of amphibians and two species of Annex IV reptiles, one amphibian species of Annex V and two other species.
