Other Site Characteristics

Kato Olympos is the foothills of Mount Olympos and Mount Ossa. The site comprises two separate areas. The large part includes habitats like pastures, extensive Abies and Fagus Forests, rugged ravines with old Castanea forests and forests of Pinus nigra. The small part is situated south west of the village Kallipefki and the dominant habitat type is forests of Ilex aquifolium (9380). The climate is between mediterranean (low altitudes) and continent (high altitudes). From a geological point of view Kato Olympos consists of Serpentinit, gneiss, amphibiotic etc. On a mountainous region like Kato Olympos, growth districts will always be more heterogeneous than in territories with a simpler geographical structure. These differences are particularly manifest in high altitude levels.

4.2 Quality and importance

This site comprises forests with great aesthetic and ecological value. A wide variety of biotopes and topography has as result a very rich flora and fauna as well as a diversity of habitats. The area has an alternating landscape with extensive closed forest, bare grazing land, mixture of pasture, groves and small fields on the platean. Listing of biotopes according to their significance for invertebrates. Among them, 2 taxa are local endemics. Astragalus lacteus (motivation D) is included in the WCMC and/or European Red Data list. Dactylorhiza sambucina (motivation D), is protected by the Greek Presidental Decree (67/1981), one taxon Carlina acaulis ssp. Simplex (motivation D) is rare in Greece. Centaurea pindicola, Peucedanum longifolium, Silene radicosa ssp. adicosa (motivation D) are Balkan endemics.
