0

Other Site Characteristics

Cinturón de paisaje volcánico en torno al Parque Nacional de Timanfaya, situado en el centro occidental de Lanzarote. La zona presenta un clima árido, con presipitaciones escasas, oscilando alrededor de los 130 mm. En líneas generales la humedad relativa es muy alta. El paisaje fué configurado en los siglos XVIII y XIX, a partir de las últimas erupciones de la isla. Destaca este Espacio Natural por albergar una interesante flora liquénica: Dimelaena radiata, Xantoria spp., Ramalina spp., entre otras especies. La flora vascular está representada básicamente por la Uvilla de mar (Zygophyllum fontanesii) y Limonium papillatum en ambientes salinos. Estan también presentes en la zona, especialmente en los "islotes" y otros sustratos antiguos, los matorrales xerofíticos de Tabaiba amarga (Euphorbia obtusifolia), Verodes (Kleinia nerifolia), Aulagas (Launaea arborescens) y Espinos (Lycium intricatum).

4.2 Quality and importance

Representando a los reptiles aparecen en el espacio, el Lagarto de Haría (gallotia atlantica) y el Perenquén rugosos (Tarentola angustimentalis). De los mamíferos destaca la endémica Musaraña canaria (Crocidura canariensis). Dos invertebrados endémicos amenazados, Stenolophus lancerottensis y Dyschirius uyttenboogarti. En lo que respecta a las aves, es de resaltar, la presencia de interesantes colonias de cría de la Pardela cenicienta (Calonectris diomedea). Asimismo, está representado el Petrel de Bulwer (Bulweria bulweri). Por otro lado, en los "islotes" que quedan en los campos de lava se pueden observar las siguientes especies: la Paloma bravía (Columba livia), el Cuervo (Corvus corax), el Cernícalo (falco tinnunculus), la Perdíz moruna (Alectoris barbara), el Alcaraván (Burhinus oedicnemus), la Tórtola común (Streptopelia turtur), la Lechuza común (Tyto alba), la Terrera marismeña (Calandrella rufescens), el Bisbita caminero (anthus berthelotii), la Curruca tomillera (Sylvia conspicillata), el Alcaudón real (Lanius excubitor), el camachuelo trompetero (Bucanetes githaginea) y el Pardillo común (Acanthis cannabina).
