The Calcareous fens is a priority habitat type in Annex I of the Directive 92/43/EEC. The Calcareous Fens are very unstable habitats thus requiring special protection. Calcareous Fens with Cladium mariscus and Carex sp are usually found at lowland areas of lakes and lagoons. The geographic distribution of the Calcareous Fens is limited to some small fresh water systems to Greece. Although the areas it covers are small these biotopes are of scientific interest since it represents unstable and vulnerable habitats. The proposed project aims at implementing management actions, which are essential for the restoration and conservation of the habitat Calcareous Fens, within the NATURA 2000 site Trichonis Lake.
