Other Site Characteristics

Profitis Elias mountain, reaching the altitude of 748m, is the highest part on the southwest part of Western Milos. There are few water streams originating from Profitis Elias and Mavro Vouno mountains, that usually dry up during summer. The vegetation is characterized mainly by phrygana, maquis and secondly by cultivations. Amongst the maquis, the dominant species are the Pistacia lentiscus and Juniperus phoenicea. In the valleys, mainly, small patches with olive trees (Olea europea), carob trees (Ceratonia siliqua) and Quercus coccifera are found. Small patches with Arbutus unedo and Juniperus oxycedrus ssp. Macrocarpa are also present in the area. Along the waterstreams there are communities with Nerium oleander, Myrtus communis, Juncus spp. and Carex sp. Geologically speaking, the island had been an active volcano till the middle of Quaternary. It consists of Plio-Pleistocene volcanic rocks and in small areas of Pliocene limestones. There are also a lot of minerals, mainly products of the older volcanic activity. Quarrying activity in nowadays is limited and fully controlled, taking into consideration the environmental concerns.Quite a large number of archeological sites (mesolithic settlements in many cases) occur in the area.

4.2 Quality and importance

The geological history of Milos gives the island a distinctive character. The site is a complex area of volcanic and sedimentary rocks and has a high ecological, geological and paleontological importance. In addition to that, the site is important due to the ore deposits (minerals). The known fauna and flora of the area is of special importance because of this complexity; a lot of endemic species, fossil findings and special habitat types exist in combination. There are findings of fossil dwarf elephants and also of Equus caballus. Very characteristic are the volcanic formations that occur all over the island and of course all over the site. Lava formations are of Pliocene/Pleistocene age. The reptile fauna is rich in protected species. Three reptile species are included in Annex II of the Directive 92/43/EEC and are also protected by the Greek Law (Presidential Decree 67/81) and by the Bern convention (Annex II). Among the invertebrates, isopods and molluscs have been studied on the island. The isopods are endemic to the Aegean Islands or to the rest of Greece. The molluscan species listed on section 3.3 are all endemic, either to the island, or to the island group of Milos, or to the Aegean Islands. Astragalus spruneri is endemic to the Balkans, Aegean Islands and Anatolia.
