Other Site Characteristics

The mountain range of Erymanthos is the highest one of an extended mountainous area in NW Peloponnisos, consisting of several peaks and characterized by a multifarious relief with many springs, valleys, plateaus and gorges. From the springs of the Olonos summit, two small rivers are formed crossing the two biggest gorges of Mt. Erymanthos. These gorges are very impressive from an aesthetic point of view, as the landscape presents several spectacular waterfalls. The Erymanthos mountain range belongs to the Olonos-Pindos geotectonic zone and the geological substratum is composed of plate limestones with layers of ceratolith and flysch. The contact of the calcareous rocks with the waterproof schists is the main reason for the existence of many springs occuring at altitudes higher than 1500m. The conifer forests with Abies cephalonica occuring on the largest part of the northern slopes of Mt. Erymanthos are characterized by good structure and dense stands up to 1800-1900m, whilst on the western slopes extended calcareous cliffs are present. The southern slopes are covered by Abies cephalonica and Juniperus foetidissima stands up to lower altitudes (1600-1700m) and, as a consequence of intense erosion and grazing, the degradation stages of vegetation accompanied by bare rocky ground give the main appearance of the landscape.

4.2 Quality and importance

Mt Erymanthos still holds good populations of birds of prey, such as the Golden Eagle (Aquila chrysaetos), the Short-toed Eagle (Circaetus gallicus) and the Peregrine Falcon (Falco peregrinus). Rock Partridges (Alectoris graeca) are still found in sustainable numbers, while open forest species like the Woodlark (Lullula arborea) and the Red-backed Shrike (Lanius collurio) are very common. Other species of interest include forest dwellers such as the Woodpigeon (Columba palumbus) and the Middle Spotted Woodpecker (Dendrocopos medius). Clusters of saplings prevent soil erosion and positively effect the ecology of the area. The forests of the study area are within the collective basin of the Erymanthos and Pineios rivers and help to protect the soil, the cultivated areas and the archaeological site. The oak forest and the Pinus halepensis forest occupy the larger part of the site. Maquis vegetation is limited. We consider that the protection of the biotopes of in this ecologically sensitive region, threatened not only by a retreat from the natural zones of development in Greece but also from disappearing from Peloponnisos, it will constitute an important measure, contributing to the conservation of the structure and the balance of the Mediterranean type ecosystems. This is an important site for species characterisitic of a mosaic of forest, pasture and olive-groves. The butterfly fauna of the area is quite important, and the site includes adequate habitats for Parnassius apollo and Parnassius mnemosyne (Annex IV), as well as for Callimorpha quadripunctaria (common in the site).
