Viola ucriana

Red List Category: Critically Endangered.
Major Threats : The area where V. ucriana persists is often subject to fire due to human activities, and these periodic sumer fires pose a major threat to the conservation of this species. Forestry plantations of exotic conifers and other species are changing the ecological conditions of its habitat, and any human action could exterminate the one remaining subpopulation.
Conservation Actions: This species is included in Red Lists at different levels (regional, national and international). However, it is not protected by any particular law or convention. The entire area of occurrence is included in the "Monte Pizzuta, Costa del Carpineto, Moarda" SIC (Site of Community Importance). Seeds are cultivated in the botanic garden of Palermo.
