Peloponnese >> Mt Parnon(Parnonas)

Mt Parnon Parnonas flora
The mountain range of Mt Parnon(1935m), or Mt Parnonas, is composed mainly of calcareous substrate and is one of the oldest areas of the Peloponnese and was isolated for a long perod, like Mt Taygetos. On its slopes conifer forests of Abies cephalonica and Pinus nigra ssp pallasiana thrive, together with Taygetos its the only European site for Juniperus drupacea. Castanea forests are also present here in good condition and extensive areas. We also included pictures of plants from the mountains south of the actual Parnon range, as far south as Mt Koulouchera.
