  • 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

Agios Efstratios is an isolated island in the Central Aegean, circa 30 km from the nearest island, Lemnos. The sea separating Agios Efstratios from the other islands is at least circa 200 m deep, in all directions. The marine area covers 12% of the site. The highest hilltop is 303 m according to the available maps. The rocks are schists, shales, and volcanic trachyte, with only some limestone patches. A large part of the coast consists of sea cliffs with caves. Most of its area was used in the past as arable land or was intensely grazed. Today there only 200 inhabitants, almost all of them concentrated at the fishing village of the NW side of the island. Cultivation and intense grazing take place in only small areas now. As a result, the formerly cultivated or grazed lands are being invaded by plants from various origins but no typical habitat has been formed yet. There are also Centaurea spinosa communities among the phrygana along the sandy beaches. Quercus macrolepis does not form an oak forest any more; the trees are only isolated and some thickets have remained only in the steep valleys. There are also some thickets of Salix alba and Populus alba near the village and the larger rivulet courses are bordered by Nerium oleander and Vitex agnus-castus. An earthquake has caused a lot of ruins where several species of reptiles occur.

4.2 Quality and importance

An important colony of Eleonora's Falcons is found in the island, as well as significant numbers of breeding Shags. The area is also important for many migratory species, including herons and waders.
