Forest Service of Parnitha has conducted numerous plant collections
and identifications, on the basis of managing the National Park.
The first attempt was made during 1984-1985, and it was continued
more systematically after 2001, with seasonal personnel of biologists
specialized in this department, such as Eirini Aplada. By the
end of 2005 over 500 plant species were photographed, collected
and identified, deposited at the herbarium of the Forest Service
of Parnitha. Several scientists have worked for this herbarium
from time to time, such as the foresters: Nick Pangas, Georgios
Karetsos, Yiannis Koutsoukos, Dimitris Papadopoulos, Vanta Gkouma,
Georgios Amorgianiotis, Sylvia Papika, Foteini Kokla, Panos
Zografos, Georgios Mantakas,
Nick Zampoukas, Sylvia Papavasileiou, Eirini Aplada, Eleni Aggelidi,
Carola Muller, Sofia Lazarou
and the forest rangers: Georgios Douvris, Georgios Gkourlias.
