Abruzzo National park

In terms of flora, the Park has almost 2,000 species of higher plants, in addition to mosses, lichens, algae and fungi. Among the endemic species of iris marsika deserves special mention, which grows only in some areas and which blooms in late spring. Many species of orchids, including the beautiful shoe of Venus or the slipper of the Madonna(Cypripedium calceolus), also with late spring flowering. Another botanical rarity is the black pine of Villetta Barea(Pinus nigra), a relict species that probably dates from the Tertiary in some areas of Camosiara and Val Fondilo). Also in the area of ​​Kamosiara is the mountain pine(Pinus mugo), an ice relic that occupies the vegetation belt under the pastures at high altitude.

Beech is the most common tree in the park and is located between 900 and 1800 meters above sea level, occupying over 60% of the entire surface of the park. Beyond the edge of the woods you will find dwarf, juniper and blueberry.

The high-altitude lawns, which together with meadows and meadows cover more than 30% of the park's surface, occupy ridges and peaks around 1900-2000 meters above sea level. In good weather you can admire the magnificent blooms of incense, ink, primroses, cyclamen, violets, anemones, scilliums, lilies, orchids, stones, ranunculus, asperula, dentaria, ofrida, blacks, lilies, red and martagan of Madonna, and Iris marsica.hepatic.

The principles of the park are definitely the Martian bears and wolves, as the latter are in serious danger of extinction around the seventies of the last century and today instead recover a little in the northern Apennines. Another symbolic species is the wild goat of Abruzzo, closely related to that of the Pyrenees, of which it is a subspecies(Rupicarpa pyrenaica ornata). Thinner than the alpine chamois(Rupicarpa rupicarpa), it has a different face design and longer horns. Other mammals are the squirrel, the fox, the wild cat, the wild boar and the lynx, present with some individuals in the wildest areas. There is no shortage of birds: only seven of the nine species widespread in Italy are present at the peaks. In the formations of mountain pines(Pinus mugo), which occupy the transitional zone between the upper border of the beech forest and the upper grasslands, there is the black bird with a collar, hairpin, golden fish, flounder and cuckoo.
