Other Site Characteristics

Some three fourths of the site are covered with forests predominant of which are the communities of 9130 Asperulo-Fagetum beech forests, 9180* Tilio-Acerion forests on slopes, scree and ravines and 91H0* Pannonian woods with Quercus pubescens. Remaining sections of the site feature agricultural land whose characteristic properties are the outcomes of long established traditional forms of land management. These practices have provided for the formation of 6510 Lowland hay meadows (Alopecurus pratensis, Sanguisorba officinalis), 6240*Sub-Pannonic steppic grasslands and 6190 Rupicolous pannonic grasslands (Stipo - Festucetalia pallentis). Communities of these habitats have to a certain degree been invaded by young seral tree species. Geological basement is formed by carbonate rocks predominate of which are limestone and dolomite. These sporadically protrude the surface to form exposed rocky outcrops. Due to the basement, substrates are typical for a high content of skeletic particles. The site is also noted for the presence of not particularly common habitats such as 8210 Chasmophytic vegetation of calcareous rocky slope, 8160* Medio-European calcareous scree of hill and montane levels and 8310 Caves not open to public. The site forms the core area of the Slovenský kras NP / Slovak Karst NP and fosters several species of flora and fauna of international importance (Bupleurum falcatum subsp. dilatatum, Thlaspi caerulescens subsp. tatrense, Lacerta viridis, several different species of bats, etc.) as well as a whole number of endemic plants (Campanula xylocarpa, Dianthus praecox subsp. pseudopraecox, Primula auricula subsp. hungarica, etc.) and nationally protected species (Monotropa hypophegea, Nepeta pannonica, Tephroseris integrifolia, etc.). Percentage within biogeographic regions: Alpine 83.452%, Pannonic 16.548%

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. The site provides valuable nesting grounds for a whole number of bird species of European importance, such as Lanius collurio, Lullula arborea, Caprimulgus europaeus, Sylvia nisoria, Picus canus, Dryocopus martius, Dendrocopos leucotos, Bubo bubo, Strix uralensis, Falco peregrinus, Pernis apivorus, Ciconia nigra, Ficedula albicollis, Ficedula parva and Bonasa bonasia. Bird species of national importance are, among others, represented by Jynx torquilla, Upupa epops, Accipiter nisus, Muscicpa striata, Phoenicurus phoenicurus, Emberiza cia, Columba oenas and Columba palumbus. The site is noted for plethora 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 are recognised wintering grounds for a number of bat species. Resident overwintering population of the species Pipistrellus pipistrellus is the largest of its kind in Central Europe. Resident colonies of other bat species of European importance - Myotis blythi a Miniopterus schreibersi - are known to be the largest populations of species in Slovakia. The site has been selected for providing an excellent example of typical forest, non-forest and rocky habitats of the Slovenský kras / Slovak Karst area. Conservationists particularly value the presence of endemic plant species Onosma tornensis whose occurrence is exclusively confined to the site. The site also supports one of the last remaining populations of critically endangered plant species Dracocephalum austriacum. The site encompasses several national nature reserves, such as NNR Zádielská tiesňava, NNR Havrania skala, NNR Turniansky hradný vrch and Nature Reserve Zemné hradisko.
