4. SITE DESCRIPTION

4.1 General site character

Habitat class % Cover

Total Habitat Cover

0

Other Site Characteristics

The site in the southwest of Psiloritis mountain (Idi), consisting exclusively of the massif of the mount Kedros; it comprises a cone delimited by the contour of 600 m with the highest summit (1776 m) almost in the middle. It is surrounded by a belt of 15 small villages, at the altitude range between 400 and 600 m, with no major settlements above the village zone. The geological substrate is limestone. The overall vegetation profile of the mountain can be described as short, dry scubs and phrygana, with lack of tree forms. Canyons and rock cliffs are characteristic of the landscape, and, to a limited extend, there are naturally treeless slopes. There is an E4 mountain footpath, climbing up to the highest point of the site.

4.2 Quality and importance

An important site for breeding raptors, montane and scrub species. Species of concern include: Gypaetus barbatus. The ecological importance of Kedros mountain, closely related to its geomorphologic structure, lies mainly on the endemic or rare floristic elements (mostly chasmophytes) and on the ideal conditions its geological relief provides for big rapace nesting.Big rapaces, such as Gyps fulvus and Hieraaetus fasciatus nest on Kedros Mt., while there is evidence of the presence of the rare Gypaetus barbatus. Besides, the site is considered as an important Bird Area. Notable among the flora species are Dianthus pulviniformis, a legally protected (Presidential Decree 67/81) and rare species (IUCN 1993), found exclusively on Kedros Mt.,and Cerastium brachypetalum ssp. Doerfleri, an indeed very rare plant, also local endemic to Kedros. Actually, all the plant species listed on section 3.3 are Greek endemics with some degree of rarity. The site is also rich in endemic snail species, most of which are stenoendemics. OTHER IMPORTANT SPECIES WITH MOTIVATION D In addition: The species Cotoneaster nummularia (vulnerable) is protected by the Greek Law (Presidential Decree 67/81) and is included in the IUCN Red Data List (1993) in the category of threatened plants. Arum creticum is a species with distribution in Crete and the East Aegean found only in SW. Turkey out of Greee. Viola rauliniana is a species with distribution in W. & C. Crete and Cyprus.
