Other Site Characteristics

Oros Taigetos is a mountain range including the highest peaks of Peloponnisos (2407 m). Geologically, it is a continuation of the Gavrovo-Tripoli zone composed of phyllites, plated limestones and flysch. Together with mountain range of Parnonas it is the oldest area of Peloponnissos. Its length is about 40 km and its southern limits touch Mt. Sangias while the northern one is the Langada gorge. The forest present on the mountain is mainly composed of Pinus nigra ssp. pallasiana and the Greek fir Abies cephalonica.

4.2 Quality and importance

Mt.Taigetos includes a large variety of biotopes offering shelter in many Greek endemic plant taxa, some of these being locally endemic to Taigetos. Taxa referred in paragraph 3.3 (D) are Balkan endemics or have scattered populations in Greece and surrounding countries. A new genus is mentioned. The above taxa have not yet been included in any Red Data Book despite their small populations and their vulnerability and variety, which place them in the category of "Endangered" taxa. The non-bird vertebrate fauna of this site is quite distinct since it is abundant and diverse, including both rare and threatened taxa. Some reptiles living in this site are listed in Annex II of the Directive 92/43/EEC (section 3.2). Moreover, many vertebrate taxa recorded in this site are evaluated as Other Important Taxa according to the motivation system used in sections 3.3. One of these taxa, the jackal, Canis aureus, is mentioned in the Greek Red Data Book under the threat category "Vulnerable" (motivation A). Some other taxa are endemic to Greece (motivation B). The great majority of the important taxa are mentioned in the Bern Convention and/or the Greek Presidential Decree 67/1981 (motivations C and D, respectively). Many other taxa are marked by D for a number of additional reasons, namely: the legless lizard Ophiomorus punctatissimus, which occurs in a relatively small area of Greece where the species shows the westernmost end of its distribution range. Finally, specific taxa (Bufo viridis, Rana dalmatina, Ablepharus kitaibelii and Felis silvestris) are additionally marked with D since they have already been evaluated by the CORINE-Biotope Project. The invertebrate species listed in sections 3.3 with motivation D are protected by the Greek Presidential Decree 67/1981. Cave Trachilas: Hosts at least five bat species of Annex II of the Directive 92/43 (500 Myotis blythii, 500 Miniopterus schreibersii, 100 Myotis emarginatus, 100 Rhinolophus euryale, 100 Rhinolophus ferrumequinum) and is among the 20 most important bat colonies in Greece. Cave Vatsinidi: hosts at least four species of bats of Annex II to Directive 92/43 (200 Miniopterus schreibersii, 10 Rhinolophus euryale, 10 Rhinolophus ferrumequinum, Rhinolophus blasii).
