Other Site Characteristics

The site consists of forest complexes, rivers with riparian vegetation and sub-alpine meadows. It includes the most important sources of Acheloos river, one of the longest rivers in Greece. Aspropotamos is formed by two rivers that converge to a main stream (forming an Y), which finally, out of the site, flows into Acheloos. The dominant tree species are Abies borissi-regis and Querqus cerris. There are pure forests of Abies borisii-regis (a habitat type not included in Annex I) and mixed forests with Fagus are formed where the fir and beech forests meet. Querqus cerris, also forms pure forests a habitat type with CORINE 1991 code 41.7512, but without the presence of Q. frainetto, also not included in Annex I). There are also reforestations with Pinus pallasiana ssp. nigra. The geomorphology of the site is characterized by a great variety of inclines and aspects. Other habitat types in the site are the calcareous cliffs of Pindus, with the alliance Gallion degenii, association Achillea clavenae and Minuartia stellata var. epirota (Quezel 1967) (8219); and the calcareous screes of central Pindos with Geranium aristatum. NOTE ON BIOGEOGRAPHIC REGION: The site, being in Central Pindos (Tringia 2204 m) and characterized by the presence of alpine and subalpine grasslands (Daphno-Festucetalia, Nardus swards) could be considered part of the alpine region; also the presence of Quercion cerris and Fagetalia could place part of the site in the sub-continental and continental biogeographic region.

4.2 Quality and importance

The area is of great importance because it comprises a large variety of habitats of a very good quality. The conservation status of the habitats present and thus their potential for conservation are notable since both the forest and the rivers are generally undisturbed by human activities and effectively protected. The fir, beech and oak forests maintain their structure and function at an excellent status.The site's importance for biodiversity is proved by the presence of many animal and plant species (see sections 3.2, 3.3) which are endemic or protected by international conventions and by the Greek Law. Finally, one more element of the site's importance is its high aesthetic value. OTHER IMPORTANT SPECIES WITH MOTIVATION D Plants: The following species are included in the IUCN Red Data List (1993) in the category of threatened plants: Barbarea sicula (vulnerable), These plants are also protected by the Greek Law (Presidential Decree 67/81). Geranium humbertii (=G. subcaulescens) is protected by the Greek Law (Presidential Decree 67/81). Viola eximia is included in the IUCN Red Data List (1993) in the category of threatened plants characterized as rare. Anthyllis vulneraria ssp. bulgarica, Poa thessala are balkan endemics. Carlina frigida is a balkan endemic occurring in S. & C. Greece probably extending to Albania and SW (former) former Jugoslavia. Anthemis cretica ssp. cretica is a Balkan endemic (it currently includes the species A. panachaica and A. meteorica which are included in the IUCN list of threatened plants as rare and are protected by the Greek Law -Presidential decree 67/81). Acantholimon echinus ssp. lycaonicum is a species with distribution in Greece and W Anatolia.
