THE LONGOZ FORESTS
Posted on July 20, 2014
The complex core is the Kamchia Reserve – dense flooded forest of Fraxinus oxycarpa, Quercus pedunculflora, Ulmus minor, Acer campestre and Alnus glutinosa, with undergrowth of Crataegus monogyna, Cornus mas and Cornus sanguinea, often combined with mesophyteand hygrophyte grass vegetation. Lianas and climbing plants entangled in the trees –Clematis vitalba, Smilax exelsa, Periploca graeca, etc. give the impression of a tropical forest, while summer snowflake (Leucojum aestivum) and several species of squill (Scilla sp.) make the spring view even more enchanting.
