Other Site Characteristics

The SCI includes part of the low mountain Golo Bardo and the Ostritza natural reserve. The grassy habitats are the most important here. The area is an active center for evolution of rare plant species.

4.2 Quality and importance

The site protects representative limestone habitats, most of them priority ones with high diversity of protected plant species.

4.3 Threats, pressures and activities with impacts on the site
