Improving the conservation status of the priority habitat types *1520 and *5220 at the Rizoelia National Forest Park
The primary aim of the project was to promote and enable the longterm conservation of the two priority habitats, '*5220 - Arborescent matorrals with Ziziphus' and '*1520 - Gypsum steppes (Gypsophiletalia)' in Cyprus, by quantifying and halting natural and anthropogenic pressures/threats that contribute to their longterm degradation.
The project was implemented within Rizoelia National Forest Park, of which the greatest part is included in the European network of nature protection areas Natura 2000 (CY6000006).
