Other Site Characteristics

Stena Kalamakiou is a gorge traversed by Pinios river in the region of Trikala, with a gallery of riparian woodland among bare hills. The site also has interesting landscape and geomorphology. The vegetation is typical for this kind of eosystems. It is characterized by plant species such as Salix alba, Alnus glutinosa, Ulmus campestris, Populus alba (and various hybrids of Populus), Vitex agnus castus, Tamarix sp., Rubus sp. There are also isolated trees of Platanus orientals and Fraxinus angustifolia. The surrounding area is mainly used as pastureland. A small part of the site, the area surrounding the hills, is cultivated

4.2 Quality and importance

Stena Kalamakiou, a gorge surrounded, a gorge of Pinios river mainly surrounded by bare hills, a land is not used for agriculture but for stock farming. Although having no special characteristics, the gorge is a valuable riverine ecosystem; it is situated in the heart of the Thessalic plain, a problematic region highly influenced by human activities. Therefore it is of special importance for the wild fauna and flora of the area, one of the last resorts in the region and needs protection. The site is also important because of the presence of rare species of birds and fishes. Specifically, the riverine cliffs around the gorge are important for rare birds of prey. The area is considered an EC Important Bird Area. It has also a high endemism regarding fish: 5 endemic subspecies, 4 species endemic to Greece and 2 species endemic to Greece and S. Yugoslavia. The endemic fish species of Pinios river are generally vulnerable and locally threatened; however in the area of the site the danger of pollution is comparatively reduced.OTHER IMPORTANT SPECIES WITH MOTIVATION D1) Leuciscus cephalus vardarensis: Endemic subspecies of Aoos, Pinios, Aliakmon, Axios and Gallikos rivers. Protected by general fishing laws. Cited in the Red Data Book of the threatened vertebrates of Greece as a generally safe but locally vulnerable species. 2) Hyla arborea: Included in annex II of the Bern convention and and considered threatened (CORINE-Biotopes project 1988). It is also protected by the Presidential Decree 67/81. 3) Natrix natrix: Protected by the Presidential Decree 67/81.
