Other Site Characteristics

Nymfeon (a nearby village) is being currently developed into an ecotouristic centre of the area. Several hotels and hostels have been built and operated succesfully, attracting many nature lovers from all Greece. Within the site there are several abandoned villages and abandoned pastures. These create suitable habitat and also provide fruits that are food for the bear. The area has been used by military forces since WW II and today, the highest peak is occupied by a large military radar station. The climate is continental type, with very cold winters.

4.2 Quality and importance

The importance of the site stems from the small bear population that permanently lives here. As it is a military area, with little activity on the subalpine grasslands, preserving the vegetation and wildlife. The beech forest is also important as a pollution absorbant in relation to the highly polluted and degraded natural environment of the Amyndeo plain. Campanula hawkinsiana, Corallorhiza trifida, Dactylorhiza sambucina, Dactylorhiza saccifera, Poa thessala (motivation D) are protected by the Greek Presidental Decree (67/1981). Epilobium collinum, Galium pseudaristatum, Viola velutina (motivation D) are rare in Greece and/or reach their extreme distribution limits in Northern Greece. Bruckenthalia spiculifolia, Centaurea deustiformis, Dianthus tristis, Silene fabarioides, Silene waldsteinii, Viola orphanidis (motivation D) are Balkan endemics and 2 taxa Geum coccineum finds its main distribution area in the Balkan Peninsula extending also to Turkey or Italy. They have also been recorded seven reptile species and two amphibian species of Annex IV , and an amphibian species of Annex V.
