4.1 General site character

Habitat class % Cover
N05100.00

Total Habitat Cover

Other Site Characteristics

El archipiélago está constituído por cuatro pequeños conjuntos de islas e islotes; el de la Columbrete "Gran", en la que puede reconocerse el antiguo cráter volcánico, el de "Ferrera", "Foradá" y el del "Bergantín".Hace años fueron objetivo de pruebas militares.

4.2 Quality and importance

Islas de origen volcánico. Albergan numerosas especies relacionadas con el subárido alicantino. Existen además endemísmos exclusivos. Destacan las poblaciones de Pardela Cenicienta (Calonectris diomedea) y halcón de Eleonor (Falco eleonorae). La lagartija endémica de Columbretes ha sido recientemente reconocida como especie con la denominación de Podarcis atrata. Los rangos de las poblaciones de aves reflejadas en el apartado 3.2 muestran los contingentes mínimos y máximos registrados en el periodo 2003-2008, elaborados a partir de censos oficiales.
