  • S: in case that the data on species are sensitive and therefore have to be blocked for any public access enter: yes
  • NP: in case that a species is no longer present in the site enter: x (optional)
  • Type: p = permanent, r = reproducing, c = concentration, w = wintering (for plant and non-migratory species use permanent)
  • Unit: i = individuals, p = pairs or other units according to the Standard list of population units and codes in accordance with Article 12 and 17 reporting (see reference portal)
  • 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 site extends to the northern part of Lesvos island, streching from the east of Mithymna to the coastal villages of Ag. Stefanos and Palios in the east. It includes the highest peaks of Lesvos (Vigla and Prophitis Ilias), as well as extensive oak woodland and maquis scrub, phrygana, grass meadows and cultivations (olive groves, etc). Within the site there are a few artificial freshwater wetlands (eg Petra reservoir).

4.2 Quality and importance
