|Biosphere Reserve Information|
Zones have been selected and determined since they include important habitats and species significant for conservation and biodiversity purposes and which are important at a regional and national basis, they have less social and physical pressures, they do not have conservation problems, they carry a common conservation value for a participatory management, they can pioneer in economic development, and they can provide planned utilization in specific areas, which may meet the management targets and provide a legal status by taking into consideration existing laws.
Flora; Fauna; Socio-economic status; Establishment of a model for socio-economic monitoring; Biodiversity monitoring program (Quality of alpine zones in selected areas; Meadows supporting wildlife populations; Quality of sub-alpine meadows in selected zones; Number of alpine meadows hosting Caucasian black grouse (Tetrao mlokosiewiczi); Distribution of Natural Old Forests; Pure Caucasus bee race).
