Other Site Characteristics

The data of this SDF covers only the 45% of the GR2130008 area, which is under the jurisdiction of the Management Authority of the Lake Pamvotis. Mitsikeli (Oros Mitsikeli) is a long and narrow mountain situated in the central part of the Ioannina Prefecture. It begins south of Mt. Timfi and extends northwestwards to southeastwards to Mt. Driskos, dominating the Ioannina Lake. Its highest peak has an altitude of 1810 m. Many springs flow from Mitsikeli and feed the Ioannina lake. The western part of the mountain, as opposed to the eastern part, is bare and remnants of fires are evident in several places. In the higher altitudes Abies borisii-regis occurs, either forming sparse stands or mixed with Quercus pubescens. Stands of Quercus pubescens appear above the maquis zone or in some places are mixed with Quercus coccifera and Juniperus oxycedrus. Formations with dwarf thickets of J. oxycedrus, Q. coccifera and Phlomis fruticosa occur in the lower altitudes. On the southwestern side of Mitsikeli, limited reforestation was made to protect the Ioannina lake from the brought material. So a reforested zone of Pinus nigra, occurs in the area of Amfithea, and mixed reforested areas with P. nigra and Cupressus sempervirens can be seen in the area of the village of Ligiades. At the eastern side of Mitsikeli extensive formations dominated by characteristic species of Ostryo-Carpinion and Quercion frainetto, such as Ostrya carpinifolia, Carpinus orientalis, Fraxinus ornus, Quercus pubescens, Corylus sp., Acer sp. etc., occur. In the higher altitudes stands of Abies borisii-regis appear.

4.2 Quality and importance

The plant taxa listed in the same section with motivation D belong to the following categories according to their distribution: a) Balkan endemics. These are: Abies borisii-regis, Centaurea epirota, Poa thessala, Ramonda serbica, Erysimum cephalonicum. The palaeoendemic rare and threatened taxon Ramonda serbica additionally receives motivation D since is protected by the Greek Presidential Decree 67/1981 and is also listed in the WCMC Plants Database as "Vulnerable". Poa thessala also receives the same motivation since it is protected by the Greek Presidential Decree 67/1981. b) Taxa with interesting distribution areas: Thymus thracicus distributed in the Balkans and westernmost Anatolia. Martes foina, and the Nose-horned Viper, Vipera ammodytes are not included in PD 67/1981. Additionally, the Green Toad, Bufo viridis, being evaluated by the CORINE-Biotopes Project, as well as the lacertid lizard Algyroides nigropunctatus and the colubrid snake Coluber gemonensis, which are both Balkan endemics, obtain motivation D. The invertebrate species listed in section 3.3 with motivation D are protected by the Greek Presidential Decree 67/1981.
