N090.01
N1627.96

Total Habitat Cover

100.00000000000001

Other Site Characteristics

A rugged area densely forested and sparsely populated. The rock is exclusively serpentine.

4.2 Quality and importance

The area has not been studied up to now. However it is important as a natural refuge for rare mammals (bear,otter, chamois) and together with the neighbouring important sites, Mt. Smolikas and Pindos National Park, forms an extensive and continuous undisturbed zone. The subalpine meadows are important hunting grounds for birds of prey. Concerning the wild growning plants the quality of the site is indicated by the occurrence of other important taxa.
