  • 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)

4.1 General site character

Habitat class % Cover

Total Habitat Cover

0

Other Site Characteristics

A fresh water lake surrounded by partly forested mountains with the town of Kastoria built on its shore. Rooted aquatic plants, submerged or with floating leaves (Potamogeton spp., Vallisneria spiralis, Najas marina, Myriophyllum spicatum, Trapa natans, Polygonum amphibium etc.) form important habitats. Also, reed beds dominated by Phragmites australis fringe the lake.

4.2 Quality and importance

An important site for breeding and wintering waterbirds, and an important foraging area for Pelecanus crispus.
