  • Group: A = Amphibians, B = Birds, F = Fish, I = Invertebrates, M = Mammals, P = Plants, R = Reptiles
  • 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 is located in the area of Dodekanissos, between the islands of Kos and Rodos. It includes the island of Nisyros and the islets of Strongyli, Kandeliousa, Pergoussa and Pacheia. Strongyli islet, is actually an active volcano, the crater of which is surrounded by primary vegetation. The island of Nisyros is characterized by pure Quercus forests and phrygana and in the east part of the island there are extensive sand dunes. There are also inland cliffs and small screes and springs which are surrounded by water related vegetation. Small villages of traditional architecture and, not extended, cultivations all around, are dispersed all over the island. In the center of Nisyros, there is an active volcano, the crater of which is surrounded by virgin natural areas, similar to Strongyli.

4.2 Quality and importance

In the island of Nisiros, Rollers breed in very significant numbers, while birds of prey like the Bonelli's Eagle and the Long-legged Buzzars can also be found. In the islets and the coastal zone, Shags are common, and there's also a colony of Eleonora's Falcons, though it doesn't satisfy the criteria. Ruppell's Warblers and Cretzschmar's Buntings are very common in phrygana.
