  • NP: in case that a species is no longer present in the site enter: x (optional)
  • Type: p = permanent, r = reproducing, c = concentration, w = wintering (for plant and non-migratory species use permanent)
  • Unit: i = individuals, p = pairs or other units according to the Standard list of population units and codes in accordance with Article 12 and 17 reporting (see reference portal)
  • Abundance categories (Cat.): C = common, R = rare, V = very rare, P = present - to fill if data are deficient (DD) or in addition to population size information
  • Data quality: G = 'Good' (e.g. based on surveys); M = 'Moderate' (e.g. based on partial data with some extrapolation); P = 'Poor' (e.g. rough estimation); VP = 'Very poor' (use this category only, if not even a rough estimation of the population size can be made, in this case the fields for population size can remain empty, but the field "Abundance categories" has to be filled in)

Other Site Characteristics

A rugged mountain dominated by scrub. The adjacent gorge and valley contains some riverine forest. 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 ecosystems. 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.

4.2 Quality and importance

This is an important area for resident raptors and species characteristic of open habitats. Stena Kalamakiou, a gorge of Pinios river surrounded by bare hills, is used 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.
