FLORISTIC AND PHYTOSOCIOLOGICAL RESEARCH OF MOUNTAIN KILLINI - �ECOLOGICAL APPROACH -

By ΠΑΝΑΓΙΩΤΗΣ ΔΗΜΟΠΟΥΛΟΣ

Abstract

THE PRESENT DOCTORAL THESIS INCLUDES THE FLORISTIC-PHYTOGEOGRAPHICAL ANALYSIS,THE PHYSIOLOGICAL RESEARCH AND NUMERICAL TREATMENT OF THE RELEVES, THE CORRELATION OF THE SOIL CONDITIONS WITH THE PLANT ASSOCIATIONS, THE DETERMINATION OF THE PHYTODYNAMIC SUCCESSION, THE MAPPING AND THE ECOLOGICAL EVALUATION OF THE VEGETATION OF THE VARIOUS ECOSYSTEMS OF MOUNT KILLINI. MANY NEW DATA WEREFOUND AND ARE PRESENTED WITHIN THE SUCCUSSIVE APPROACHES. THE FLORA OF KILLINI IS COMPOSED OF 961 TAXA, FROM WHICH 295 ARE NEW REPORTED TAXA FOR KILLINI (6 NEW FOR PELOPONNISOS AND 7 NEW FOR N. PELOPONNISOS). THE FLORISTIC CHARACTER OF MOUNT KILLINI-WHICH IS INDISPUTABLY MEDITERRANEAN AND ITS PHYTOGEOGRAPHICAL AFFINITIES WITH MTS OF PELOPONNISOS AND STEREA HELLAS MTS WITH PARNASSOS AND GIONA. EXCEPT FROM THE RECOGNITION AND DETERMINATION OF THE PREVIOUSLYDESCRIBED VEGETATION UNITS, 7 NEW PLANT ASSOCIATIONS, 4 NEW SUBASSOCIATIONS,4 NEW PLANT COMMUNITIES, 1 NEW FACIES AND 5 NEW VARIANTS ARE ALSO DESCRIBED.THE FORESTS WITH MOUNTAINOUS CONIFERS HOLD THE HIGHER ECOLOGICAL VALUE FROM THE TOTAL OF THE KILLINI'S FOREST ECOSYSTEMS, FOLLOWED BY THE EVERGREEN HARDLEAVED SCRUBS AND THE STANDS WITH PINUS HALEPENSIS AND DECIDRIOUS OAKS. THE SUPRAFORESTAL ECOSYSTEMS PRESENT A HIGH ECOLOGICAL IMPORTANCE SINCE THEY ARE CHARACTERIZED BY GREAT UNIQUENESS, DIVERSITY AND RICHNESS OF ENDEMISM. THE PROTECTION OF FLAMBURITSA GORGE AS WELL AS OF THE SUPRAFORESTAL ECOSYSTEMS OF MEGALI ZIRIA SUMMIT HAVE BEEN PROPOSED.
