Other Site Characteristics

The island of Antimilos is located on the west side of the Aegean Volcanic arc. It belongs to the island group of Milos in Cyclades. Geologically, it was an active volcano till the beginning of Quaternary. It totally consists of Pliocene and Pleistocene volcanic rocks. On the top of the island an old, non-active, caldera can be seen. The vegetation is phrygana and dry maquis. There are intermittent streams on the island. On the top, at a height of 670m, there is a small hollow area with standing water during spring time, most likely it is a temporary pond. An old water reservoir, which dates back to World War II, and two buildings are the only constructions by the top. Today the island is uninhabited but there are signs of previous cultivations and settlements. The coastline is rocky and there is only one pebble beach only on the south side. The sea surrounding the island is not deep, but the depth between Antimilos and the island of Milos can exceed 200 m. In the marine area (20% of the site), there are Posidonia beds and near the island there are shallow reefs with a rocky substrate with Cymodocea beds. We have used habitat type 1240 to describe the vegetated sea cliffs but not necessarily with the plant communities of Euphorbia sp., Limonium sp. etc. (as described in Corine 91, code 18.22). Note: plant species recorded on the island are Torilis heterophylla, Centaurium maritimum, Silene sedoides.

4.2 Quality and importance

The parameters of the ecological and scientific quality and importance of Antimilos are related to its geological history and to its fauna and flora. The most important characteristic of the site are the volcanic formations that occur all over the island. The whole site consists of lava formations of Pleiocbe/Pleistocebe age and there is a non-active caldera on the summit of the island. Concerning the fauna of Antimilos the data are satisfactory. The island is today a refuge for the wild goats. The lizards listed on section 3.3. are protected by the Greek law, and by the Bern Convention (annex II). The isopod species listed on 3.3. are all endemic to the Aegean. The cliffs of the island are important for seabirds, raptors and migrating birds. Regarding the flora and vegetation of the island, we are aware of the richness in plant species as well as of the very good condition of the vegetation. The phrygana formations can be considered of excellent representativity. Unfortunately there are very few records of the islands plants but because of the volcanic substrate, the relief and geological history of the island, one would expect important and rare species to occur on the island. Posidonia beds, a special priority habitat, are abundant in the marine part of the site. Also important are the Cymodocea beds.
