  • Abundance categories (Cat.): C = common, R = rare, V = very rare, P = present - to fill if data are deficient (DD) or in addition to population size information
  • Data quality: G = 'Good' (e.g. based on surveys); M = 'Moderate' (e.g. based on partial data with some extrapolation); P = 'Poor' (e.g. rough estimation); VP = 'Very poor' (use this category only, if not even a rough estimation of the population size can be made, in this case the fields for population size can remain empty, but the field "Abundance categories" has to be filled in)

Other Site Characteristics

The extensive oak forests of Quercion frainetto have been degraded because of intensive overgrazing and fires. Large part of these forests is covered today by Sclerophyllus scrub (evergreen broad leaves of the eu-mediterranean vegetation zone) and grasslands. Above the timber line the ground cover vegetation consists of endemic and rare species and characteristic habitats. Three main streams on the northern slopes of the site form waterfalls and ponds. The dominant species of the riparian vegetation is oriental plane. From a geological point of view the region belongs to the Mass of Rodope. The climate is Mediterranean. The marine component of the site includes some extensive submarine meadows of the angiosperms Posidonia oceanica and –to a lesser degree- Cymodocea nodosa. The rocky islet of Zourafa lies in the easternmost edge of the marine area. Several reefs are also found offshore of Aghia Paraskevi village, reaching to a depth of 50m.

4.2 Quality and importance

The island of Samothraki has remained faily untouched by tourist development, therefore its avifauna is still very rich in species sensitive to human presence like birds of prey.
