Other Site Characteristics

The site, including the artificial lake of Tavropos (techniti limni Tavropou), is located on the mountainous area of Agrafa (S. Pindos) at the outskirts of Belocomitis village. The inclines range from moderate (20%) to steep (80%). The parent material of the substrate consists of sandy flinch and limestones. The climatic conditions are highly favourable for tree growth. The most extensive tree stands consist of pure Abies borisii regis forests. Other important tree species are: Quercus frainetto, Pinus pallasiana ssp. nigra, and Castanea sativa. Some woody plant species, like Acer campestre, A. pseudoplatanus, Platanus orientalis, Salix incana, S. alba, Juniperus foetidissima, J. Oxycedrus, Quercus pubescens, Q. cerris, Q. conferta, Q. dellechampii, Ostrya caprinifolia, Caprinus betulus, e.t.c., often emerge in small groups or as scattrered trees and shrubs among the stands of the dominant species, fir and oak . The above mentioned species form various vegetation patches within the site.

4.2 Quality and importance

The most notable feature of the site is its biodiversity. The mosaic of habitats and the resultant large number of ecotopes support an extremely rich fauna in terms of quality and quantity. Many significant invertebrate and vertebrate species, inhabiting the area covered by the site have been recorded. Twelve species of birds are listed on the Annex I of the Directive 79/409/EEC. Many other species, i.e., amphibian, reptiles, birds, and mammals, occurring in the area are protected by the Bern Convention. The above species and specific mammals are included in the National Red Data Book as locally vulnerable, vulnerable, or insufficiently known species. On the other hand, the biodiversity of the vegetation indicates the presence of a rich and interesting flora that has not been sufficiently studied yet. OTHER IMPORTANT SPECIES WITH MOTIVATION D Plants: Aesculus hippocastanum is an East Mediterranean endemic, native only in the Balkan peninsula in Europe (Greece, former Jugoslavia, Albania, Bulgaria). The site is in fine condition. It hosts suitable habitats (lakes, riparian refuges) for the freshwater species (Astacus astacus) that should be present there. The species was not found during the fieldwork. Its occurrence is documented by the literature.
