Other Site Characteristics

Some two thirds of the site are covered with forest communities of 91H0* Pannonian woods with Quercus pubescens. Remaining sections of the site support biologically diverse communities of 6210 Semi-natural dry grasslands and scrubland facies on calcareous substrates (Festuco-Brometalia) some of which have been taken over by pioneer tree species (initial seral stage of forest). Geological basement is built by carbonate rocks predominate of which are limestone and dolomite. These sporadically protrude surface to form exposed rocky outcrops. Due to the basement, local soils are typical for a high content of skeletic particles. The site encompasses an exceptionally high number of underground cavities, abysses and caves (8310 Caves not open to public) and provides favourable conditions for the occurrence of a number of species of international importance (Bupleurum falcatum subsp. dilatatum, Bufo viridis, Lacerta viridis, several species of bats) as well as nationally protected species of plants, namely Adonis vernalis, Cleistogenes serotina, Iris pumila, Orchis tridentate, etc.

4.2 Quality and importance

The site is situated in the Slovenský kras NP / Slovak Karst NP holding at the same time the status of the UNESCO - MAB Biosphere Reserve. It also falls within the territory of the Important Bird Area (IBA) Slovenský kras and pending Slovenský kras SPA. Its habitats provide important nesting grounds for several species of birds of European importance including Ficedula albicollis, Lanius collurio, Lullula arborea, Caprimulgus europaeus, Dendrocopos medius, Dryocopus martius and Bonasa bonasia. Bird species of national importance are represented, among others, by species Emberiza cia. The site is noted for a rich mosaic of underground karstic features of outstanding natural beauty (caves, abysses) that have under the name "Caves of Aggtelek and Slovak Karst" been inscribed into the UNESCO World Heritage List (cross border site with Hungary). These underground phenomena represent important wintering grounds for several species of bats. Owing to the occurrence of valuable xerothermic habitats the site was designated a national nature reserve in 1981.
