Other Site Characteristics

The greatest part of the area forms a peninsula ending in cape Maleas. Phytogeographically this is the northern part of the South Aegean area, starting from the SW Asia and through Rodos, Karpathos, Kriti and Kythira ends at the eastern part of the three peninsulas of S. Peloponnisos. The island of Elafonisos lies to the west of the peninsula and is a geological and ecological continuation of the area.

4.2 Quality and importance

The variety of biotopes give shelter to a great number of very interesting plant taxa which are endemic to Greece. While formations with Euphorbia dendroides follow phrygana formations and coastal sand dunes and sand beaches house Juniperus macrocarpa "forest" especially on the island of Elafonisos. A rich and diverse vertebrate fauna inhabits this site. Of the non-bird taxa, some mammalian and reptilian species are listed in Annex II of the Directive 92/43EEC (section 3.2), whereas many others are evaluated as Other Important Species on the basis of the criteria used for completing sections 3.3. The Sand Boa, Eryx jaculus, is also protected by the CITES Convention. Most of these taxa are also included in the lists of the protective Greek Presidential Decree 67/1981, thus being eligible for the D motivation (exceptions are the lizard Ablepharus kitaibelii Eryx jaculus, Vipera ammodytes, and the large mammals Canis aureus. Ablepharus kitaibelii is indicated by D since it is mentioned by the handbook of the CORINE-Biotopes Project, and Bufo viridis, Hyla arborea and Natrix tessellata are additionally marked with D as they are mentioned in the same document. The following taxa also fall under this motivation category for additional reasons:Ophiomorus punctatissimus shows the westernmost end of its whole distribution area in Peloponnisos. This site is also important for many migratory bird species, since it is one of the two southernmost areas of the Greek mainland which are valuable stations for the birds, before and after their exhausting travel over Mediterrranean Sea.
