Other Site Characteristics

This site comprises the north-eastern part of Amorgos island and the offshore islets Levitha, Kinaros and Mavria. The maximum altitude is 821m. a.s.l. It is a rocky place with a lot of inland cliffs and sea cliffs. The islets are located almost in the centre of the Aegean between Amorgos and Leros islands with maximum altitude not exceeding 200 m. There are cultivations in the centre of Levitha islet. There are also a lot of free grazing goats all over the island. On Kinaros islet there are also cultivations and goats but fewer than on Levitha. In both islets there are very deep bays, which could be considered similar to fjords. The vegetation on Kinaros and Levitha is phrygana and maquis. There are very few intermittent streams. Geologically the whole area consists of limestones of the Jurassic - Triassic period. The marine area includes shallow waters with Posidonia beds and Cymodocea beds on rocky surfaces. It should be mentioned that because of the substrate there must be caves in the area, but there are not enough relative data.

4.2 Quality and importance

The whole area, north-eastern Amorgos and the offshore islets, is quite important regarding its ecological and scientific quality as well as its aesthetic value. Though the area has not been sufficiently studied yet, the available data show a high degree of endemism both in plant and animal species. The floristic and faunistic importance of the area is due to the position of the islets, being in the centre of the Aegean sea, and to their relatively large size (compared to other Aegean islets). Their fauna and flora has elements of the surrounding areas. Also, the island of Amorgos, which is the easternmost island of the Cyclades, shows characteristic elements of the Asian and European fauna and flora. Regarding the flora, the limestone cliffs and screes that characterize the site are typical habitats of endemic plant species. OTHER IMPORTANT SPECIES WITH MOTIVATION D (for the other species explanations are given in the above text). Helichrysum orientale is a species with distribution in Greece and W Turkey. Lactuca acanthifolia (= Scariola acanthifolia) is found in Ydra, Cyclades, East Aegean Islands and only in SW Turkey out of Greece. Senecio bicolor is a chasmophyte with a restricted geographical area of distribution forming isolated populations with local differentiation (scattered in the Mediterranean, Cyclades, Kythira, Nisyros, Chios).
