  • 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 mountainous northern region of Chios includes the Pelinaion range (1297 m). Regarding geology, the greater part of Chios is composed of coarse grey, chalky limestone, forming, particularly in the northern region, bold ridges, rugged summits and craggy cliffs. In the north-west bulge of the island limestones are replaced by Palaeozoic schists and greywacke, and the hills are rounded with gentler slopes and wider valleys. Some other remarkable characteristics of the site are: the extensive area with evergreen shrubs and phrygana (a part of this area is used for grazing), the Pinus brutia forest which in some cases is dense and well conserved, the inland water bodies especially in the NE part of Chios, the extended arable part of the site, and the extensive aquatic area with posidonia beds and reefs.

4.2 Quality and importance

The very rare in Greece Cinereous Bunting is found breeding in this site, which is the most important, along with Lesvos. Furthermore, Long-legged Buzzards, Short-toed Eagles, Lanners and Peregrine Falcons are nesting in significant numbers. Finally, Woodlarks and Cretzschmar's Bunting can also be found in high densities.
