The mountain massif of Paggeo in northeastern Greece was chosen as the study area because: i) it is geomorphologically isolated from other mountains of the Greek southern Rhodope range (Eleftheriadis & Koroneos, 2003) and 'island' type population of beech (Fagus sylvatica) grows on it; ii) beech forests cover a wide elevational range from 600 to 1800 m asl and occur in sites with different ecological conditions, resulting in a high diversity of beech forest plant communities (Papageorgiou & al., 2014); and, iii) the geomorphological diversity of the mountain is high, and a deep gorge on its north-eastern slope offers suitable ecological conditions for the preservation of relict species or populations (Tzedakis & al., 2002).
