Other Site Characteristics

The site is located at the north part of the island. It contains the mountain Syringas and is extended up to the northern coastal area. It is the only area in the island with limestones, in contrast to the rest of the island where volcanic rocks are the main geological components. There are many springs, surrounded by running water related vegetation, sea cliffs, inland cliffs, caves, screes and small gorges. At the coastal area there are not extended sand dunes. In general, the site can be considered as a typical phryganic ecosystem.

4.2 Quality and importance

The quality and the importance of the site result from the following elements: 1) The mountain Syringas is naturally protected because of the steep rocks and cliffs and the lack of roads that make the area difficult to access. 2) There are a lot of unexplored caves. 3) The site as a whole (and particularly the mountain Syringas) is very important for the avifauna and the mammals, due to its geomorphology and to the presence of many refuges. Mammals populations are in an excellent condition. Regarding birds, the site still holds significant populations of birds of prey such as the Bonelli's Eagle, the Long-legged Buzzard and the Peregrine Falcon, while on the rocky coasts Shags are nesting in moderate numbers. 4) Its flora is rich in common and endemic species. The later are of great interest, as many of them are rare endemic species of the Aegean. Its fauna is also rich in local endemic ivertebrates. 5) Sand dunes are very important for the conservation of the flora. 6) The site can be considered as a typical phryganic ecosystem
