Other Site Characteristics

Las Islas Columbretes constituyen la parte emergida de un extenso campo volcánico submarino situado en un extremo de la extensa plataforma continental que se desarrolla al sur de la desembocadura del Ebro. Las Islas Columbretes y el campo volcánico sumergido onstituyen uno de los raros ejemplos de vulcanismo cuaternario en el Mediterráneo. En esta zona los fondos marinos presentan dos tipos básicos de sustratos, rocosos y detríticos. Los sustratos rocosos aparecen en las laderas sumergidas de los islotes y en los fondos asociados a estructuras volcánicas. Por su parte, los fondos detríticos se alterna con fangos de origen continental, que cubren la mayoría de fondos profundos y sobre los que se asientan (ocupando grandes áreas) fondos de rodolitos o maërl. Desde el punto de vista ecológico hay que destacar la importante biodiversidad asociada a los fondos del entorno de las Islas Columbretes. La variedad de comunidades bentónicas presentes en los fondos de Columbretes viene determinada por la diversidad morfológica y por la transparencia de sus aguas.

4.2 Quality and importance
