On Sunday, June 23th, the group visited the high altitude plateaus, where the three temporary ponds are located. They were accompanied all-day-long by Georgios Karetsos, the manager of IMFE and deputy Scientific Coordinator of the project, and Christos Georgiadis, the Project Manager. During their visit to one of the temporary ponds they had the opportunity to observe the sampling methods used for monitoring the endemic Veronica species of Mt. Oiti (Veronica oetaea*) and received information about the flora of the temporary ponds by the researcher Pinelopi Delipetrou. Additionally, our ornithologist, Charalampos Alivizatos provided information about the monitoring of the local avifauna.
