Other Site Characteristics

Kerketion Oros (Koziakas) is a mountain at the left edge of central Pindos range, with bare and rocky ridges and peaks but also with fir forests and open structure ravine forests. The vegetation of the area includes phrygana, dry calcareous grasslands, dry siliceous grasslands, native coniferus woodlands, screes, exposed bedrocks, and inland cliffs. The dominant type of vegetation is the King's Boris fir forests (Abies borisii-regis). Abies borisii regis forms pure, fairly well structured forests and is only mixed with beech at small patches (the habitat is described with the code 9270, which, however, corresponds to mixed beech-fir forests). Across the continuous flow small local rivers there are Platanus orientalis forests with Alnus glutinosa, Salix caprea, Salix alba, Salix incana and Salix sp. The subalpine grasslands are characterized by the Junipero-Daphnion zone. There are also stepped and garland grasslands (6173). Finally, the site includes the University Fosrest of Pertouli, used for educational reasons and maintaining a very good conservation status. NOTE ON BIOGEOGRAPHIC REGION: The site, being in Central Pindos (Kerketion 1901 m) 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

Mount Kerketion is an area with significant diversity, supporting well conserved natural habitats, most importantly the fir and oak forests and also the rocky habitats, and hosting endemic and threatened or rare species of the flora and fauna, notably of the avifauna and the mammal fauna. The mountain has been characterized as an Important Bird Area (IBA) for large birds of prey and has large populations of raptors, especially of vultures. The significant populations of mammals found in the area are in part due to the site's management as a game reserve and controlled hunting area: the animals are fed and protected from natural and human (hunters) threats. In addition, three game species have been imported and are bred in the area: a deer species, Dama dama, a pheasant (Phasianus colchicus), and a partridge.The ecological quality and balance of the site as fashioned by the management of the site are fragile and require a continual maintainance by the Forestry Department. Nevertheless, it is important that the natural environment is effectively protected and conserved and at the same time it provides a significant source of income for the area, functioning as a tourist attraction (for hunting). OTHER IMPORTANT SPECIES WITH MOTIVATION D Plants: 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 Jugoslavia. Ophioglossum vulgatum occurs thoughout the temperate regions of the northern hemosphere, but it is rare and scattered in Greece.Geranium humbertii (=G. subcaulescens) is protected by the Greek Law (Presidential Decree 67/81).
