Title: Identifying Natura 2000 habitats in the watershed of the middle section of the Devoll river (Southeast Albania)
Year: 2018
Volume: 49
Pages: 73-81.


Abstract: The watershed of the middle section of the Devoll River is located between the districts of Korçë, Pogradec, and Gramsh. The geographical location of this area, complex topography, climate characteristics, diff erent rock substrates and soil types as well as hydrological conditions, contribute to a rich flora and diversity of natural habitats. Our main goal was the identifi cation and mapping of Natura 2000 habitat types within the study area, based on mainly their typical plant species. Th e mapping was carried out during the period 2016–2018. The most representative habitats in the area are: (sub-)Mediterranean pine forests with endemic black pines (9530), Pannonian–Balkanic turkey oak–sessile oak forests (91M0), Quercus trojana woods (9250), and Quercus ilex and Quercus rotundifolia forests (9340).
