Other Site Characteristics

Klenovský Vepor Mt. constitutes of a mountain ridge spreading in the east western direction. Central parts of the ridge are dominated by plateau whose edges are rimmed by crags turning steep slopes and sporadically occurring boulder scree formations. From the geological point of view, the site is built by igneous rocks dominated by lava flow andesites and andesite pyroclastics. Its bottom sections are formed by rocks of the crystalline complex protruding from the volcanic basement.

4.2 Quality and importance

The site represents a good example of exceptionally high diversity of forest plant communities concentrated on a rather small area. Diversity of the vegetation is grossly determined by the topography of the site, chiefly its aspect and variability of features. Oldest forest stands currently reach the average age of more than 180 years and belong to the most valuable primeval forest formations in Slovakia. Speciality of the site is the occurrence of the xerothermic plant community with Festuca pseudodalmatica (6240* Sub-Pannonic steppic grassland) in the top sections of Klenovský Vepor Mt. History of the efforts to conserve this truly unique site goes back as far as to 1887 when the local forests were declared as the protective forests. The site has been under a continual legal protection since 1964 (national nature reserve); years 1980, 1984 and 1994 recorded further specification of the conservation status. Area of Klenovský Vepor National Nature Reserve was substantially enlarged in 2003 and it has been included in the series of the Slovak primeval forests nominated for the inscription into the UNESCO List of World Heritage Sites. The site constitutes the centre of the regionally important core zone of the national network of the Terrestrial System of Ecological Stability.
