Progress of the project in April 2014

-Preparatory Actions 

Germination of Veronica oetaea* was tested at various temperatures, in light and darkness, on seeds collected on 23/06/2013. Recording and analysis of the soil samples that were collected from the 3 temporary ponds in June and October 2013.
Data processing and analysis continued.
Samples were processed for the Veronica oetaea* seedbank.
Data processing and analysis continued.
Evaluation of the data regarding habitat type Juniperus foetidissima forests (9560*) that were collected during the summer of 2013. Initial results indicate that additional study of Juniperus foetidissima population and sites will be needed.
The external assistant-ornithologist made his twentieth field trip (15-17/04/2014) and submitted a full report.
The study on the specifications for Brown Bear Ursus arctos*management has been completed.  Additionally, an abstract for a Poster presentation in the International Bear Association (IBA) Conference, which will be organized by ARCTUROS, in Thessaloniki in October 2014, was prepared and submitted.
-Concrete Conservation Actions 
Arrangements to obtain the GSM cards for the ten GPSR tracking ringers that will be used to monitor the daily activity of cattle on Mt. Kallidromo, were completed.
Plant care works (watering and fertilizing) of the 9,000 transplanted Cupressus sempervirens plants continued. Survival and growth monitoring was carried out in a 10%-sample of the plants.
Cupressus sempervirens plants were grafted using Juniperus foetidissima grafts collected from Mt. Oiti on 20/3/2014, for comparison with the grafts collected on 22/1/2014. 
Seed germination experiments for temporary pond plant species.
-Dissemination Actions 
The project’s poster has been printed.
The webpage of the project is continuously updated. 
-Overall Management Actions
A meeting of the project team has held at the offices of HSPN on 8/4/2104 to plan the activities during the coming spring and summer and to prepare the programme of the Mission 2014.
