Pardosa albomaculata and Gnaphosa orites Chamberlin (Gnaphosidae) were significant indicators of the two higher elevations in the Richardson Range, while Agyneta jacksoni Braendegaard (Linyphiidae) and Xysticus britcheri Gertsch (Thomisidae) significantly indicated the lowest elevation.
The bank has also been active in support of economic infrastructure notably in the environmental area where it has supported water treatment projects by large municipalities and in the energy sector including the Orites project, the first wind power operator in Cyprus, which led Euromoney to award the "Lender of the Year" title to the EIB.
The Orites wind power plant will have a total installed capacity of 82 MW and is expected to produce 128 GWh a year, thereby meeting the needs of some 25,000 Cypriot households and cutting annual carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by 100,000 tonnes.

Studies of other alpine fires, and fire behaviour in general, have shown that the most flammable part of the alpine landscape is the dense, closed heath communities that are dominated by unpalatable shrubs such as Prostanthem, Phebalium and Orites. These communities are usually avoided by cattle, which prefer open grassy communities where there is abundant, palatable fodder that is significantly less flammable than the shrubs.
