Other Site Characteristics

The site is a group of islands on the south of Kyhtira island: Antikythira, Thymonies, Pseira, Plakoulithra, Lagouvardos and Prasonisi. Most of the islands are characterised by steep sea-cliffs with a plateau on the top. Antikythira is the largest island of the group. It has an area of 20 Km2 and a maximum altitude of 378 m. Few inhabitants live there throughout the year. The dominant rock is limestone (Triassic and Cretaceous) but there are some Neogene deposits, too.The dominant vegetation is low maquis and phrygana , while part of the island is cultivated with cereals. Antikythira is one of the drier locations in Greece, receiving annualy less than 200 mm of rainfall. Prasonisi is located 7.5 Km N-NW of Antikythira. Its area is about 0.27 Km2 and its maximum altitude 129 m. It consists of limestones. The vegetation consists mainly of herbaceous plants (phryganic and halophytic) but there is a thick body of maquis shrubs at the westwern side. Lagouvardos island is located 7.2 Km NW of Antikythira and 3 Km from Prasonisi. Its area is about 0.06 Km2 and its maximum altitude 42 m. It consists of limestone rocks. Halophilous herbs and a few Gramineae are the only plants growing there.Falco eleonorae population values are based on LIFE - Nature «Δράσεις προστασίας για τον Μαυροπετρίτη Falco eleonorae στην Ελλάδα» (LIFE03 NAT/GR/000091)

4.2 Quality and importance
