4.1 General site character

Habitat class % Cover

Total Habitat Cover


Other Site Characteristics

Vouni Panagias is situated at the eastern boundary of Pafos district and comprises the highest part of it with an altitude of 1144 m at the highest peak (Prophitis Elias). The site is surrounded by Asprogia, Panagia, Vrecha, Kilinia and Ampelitis villages. Chrysorrogiatissa and Agia Moni monasteries are found in southwest part of the site.Geology: The central part of the site is composed of Pachna Formation (chalks, marls, marly chalks, chalky marls and calcarenites) and is surrounded by a zone of Lefkara Formation (chalks, marls, marly chalks, chalky marlswith cherts in places as bands or nodules). Around the periphery there are small parts of Kathikas Formation (variably coloured, poorly sorted debrites with angular clasts upto boulder size in a sand and clay matrix), Kannaviou Formation (bentonitic clays interbedded with off-white volcaniclastic sandstones) and Lavas with Volcaniclastic Sediments (olivine-and / or pyroxene-phyric, aphyric pillow lavas with some hyaloclastites, sheet lava flows and dykes, altered to zeolite facies).Climate (meteorological data 1961-1990): The mean yearly rainfall of the area is 779 mm and the mean maximum monthly rainfall, which occurs during November, is 227 mm. The mean daily maximum temperature (August) is 31.4 ° C, the mean daily minimum temperature (December) 7.7 ° C, the highest maximum temperature (August) is 37.3 ° C, the highest minimum temperature (December) is 0.7 ° C and the minimum daily ground temperature (February) is 9° C with 9 frost days per year. VegetationThe characteristic vegetation of Vouni Panagias is the "relic" woodland of Quercus infectoria ssp. veneris (habitat type 93A0). Quercus infectoria occurs in open, small stands or patches and more often in isolated individuals in field margins or within the cultivated fields. Within the site there exist meso-Mediterranean tall (up to 4 m) thickets with species typical of the floristic structure of Quercus infectoria woodland (e.g., Pistacia terebinthus, Styrax officinalis, Crataegus monogyna, Crataegus azarolus) but with very low participation (may be as low as 1-3 young individuals) of Q. infectoria itself. Quercus coccifera, often, participates largely in these communities, too. These thickets occur at few sites, on poorer, rocky limestone slopes, especially where the Quercus infectoria trees were occasionally cut down and constitute a refuge for birds which feed in the area. These thickets, even though they may be degradations of the woodlands with Quercus infectoria, are included in habitat type 93A0 and it is believed that in most cases should they be left undisturbed they would develop to proper woodland.Pinus brutia forest (habitat type 9540) occurs mainly in the northeast part and at a lesser extent in the northwest. At some parts Pinus brutia is sparse and the understorey consists of high shrubs such as Quercus coccifera ssp. calliprinos and Styrax officinalis which dominate at large openings. At other parts the forest is dense with smaller shrubs in the understorey vegetation.Phrygana vegetation (habitat type 5420) is mainly composed of Sarcopoterium spinosum, Lithodora hispidula ssp. versicolor, Thymus integer, Fumana arabica and Helichrysum italicum. Pseudo-steppes with grasses and annuals (habitat type 6220) comprising both annual plants, like Vicia spp., Onobrychis spp., Plantago spp., Scorpiurus muricatus, Bromus spp. and perennials such as Leontodon tuberosus and Hyparrhenia hirta occur in mosaics with phrygana.Cupressus sempervirens forest (habitat type 9290) occurs at the eastern part of the site occupying the steep calcareous slopes.Although Genista fasselata ssp. fasselata occurs at many places as part of the vegetation, especially among phrygana, pure Genista fasselata scrub (habitat type 5330) is restricted to one small patch.Vegetated calcareous inland cliffs with chasmophitic vegetation (habitat type 8210) are mainly composed of Ptilostemon chamaepeuce var. cyprius, Arabis purpurea and Ranunculus creticus.There are 2 caves on the top of Vouni (habitat type 8310) which have not been explored.

4.2 Quality and importance

Vouni Panagias, despite the long human intervention throughout its area, maintains habitats with a considerable degree of naturalness which provide a refuge for a fair number of important flora and fauna species. The steep rocks as well as the various types of shrub and forest are important habitats for birds. The elements of the ecological quality and importance of the site are:1) The site includes 8 habitat types listed on Annex I 92/43/EEC (or accepted new additions to the Annex) and 2 plant species listed on Annex II. Another 53 important plant species, 43 of them endemic grow in the site. Most importantly, the site includes some of the most representative and extended stands of Quercus infectoria forest and it is one of the areas where this habitat has a good potential for regeneration. The old trees of Q. infectoria constitute an important habitat for Propomacrus bimucronatus (a new addition to Annex II). Moreover, Scilla morrisii (an accepted new addition to Annex II as a priority species) has the largest of its only two local populations in Cyprus in Q. infectoria stands in old cultivations near Agia Moni monastery and at Vouni. S. morisii has been considered a relict species of these ancient forests, its survival being depended upon the conservation of the remaining forest fragments.2) The avifauna of the site includes 113 species, 29 of them listed on Annex I 79/409/EEC or new additions to the Annex. Its importance for the birds has led to its proposal as a Special Protection Area (SPA). It is a hunting area for at least 2 pairs (out of the 30 living in Cyprus) of Hieraaetus fasciatus. It is also a breeding area for Buteo rufinus and Falco peregrinus. Until 1990 it was a nesting area for Gyps fulvus. The last three years the site hosts regularly the only single individual of Aegypius monachus, which exists on the island. Also, it maintains one of the last few pairs of Corvus corax in Cyprus. The site is an important station for many Sylviidae species and for large populations of raptors during migration. Tichodroma muraria is found in the area and large populations of all the Turdus species (except T. torquata which is very rare in the site) occurring in Cyprus winter here. The endemic Annex I species (accepted new additions) Parus ater cypriotes, Oenanthe cypriaca and Sylvia melanothorax breed in the site, the latter two in important populations. The endemic Garrulus glandarius glanzeri as well as the very rare Loxia curvirostra guillemardi have been recorded in the site.3) Many individuals of the endemic Ovis gmelini ophion (accepted new addition to Annex II 92/43/EEC) are permanent residents of the area, especially after the mating period. The site is certainly a mating area for the species and since the cliffs of the site provide suitable place it is quite possible that this is a breeding area too.4) The site hosts several other important fauna species, in total 22 mammals, amphibians and reptiles, 62 insects (36 of them endemic) and 4 endemic land snails. Notably, it provides a habitat for one of the few populations of Coluber cypriensis (accepted new addition to Annex II 92/43/EEC as a priority species) and for the Annex II insects Callimorpha quadripunctata and Propomacrus bimucronatus. The latter has been found at few sites in Cyprus and has in the site one of its most important (up to now) populations.Other Important Species with Motivation D (3.3, 3.4)Glaucosciadium cordifolium (Glaucosciadium is a monotypic genus) is a subenedmic species occurring only in Cyprus and Turkey. Ranunculus creticus, an extremely rare species in Cyprus, has been recorded only from Vouni Panagias and Arminiou cliff. The species occurs only in Crete, Karpathos and Cyprus. Onosma mitis is a subendemic species occurring in Cyprus and Turkey. Allium paniculatim ssp. exaltatum is probably endemic to Cyprus. According to the IUCN-WCMC database (1997) of threatened plants, Sedum cyprium is rare, Jurinea cypria is vulnerable and Allium willeanum is threatened of indeterminate degree.Corvus corax used to be common in Cyprus but today it should be considered threatened since few pairs have remained on the island. Thersamonia thersamon, Freyeria trochylus are threatened taxa according to Heath (1981). Calosoma sycophanta is an important (determinative for ecosystem balance) threatened taxon (Koomen & van Helsdinger, 1996; Collins & Wells 1987) listed on the European Red List of Globally Threatened Animals and Plants and on the CORINE (1991) threatened species list. Kisanthobia ariasi, Prinobius myardi are threatened taxa according to Speight (1989). Charaxes jasius, Rhesus serricolis are rare taxa (isolated and local to restricted geographic areas or biotopes). Pendoton bidens sulcifrons, Acmaeodera guillebeaui, Stenosis sulcata, Blaps splichali, Uloma cyprea are subendemic taxa (endemic to Cyprus and neighbouring countries). Pelopidas thrax, Broscus nobilis, Ditomus asiaticus, Morion olympicus, Anthaxia lucens phoenica, Chalcophora detrita, Cerambyx nodulosus, Cerambyx welensi, Purpuricenus longevittatus nudicolis, Calchaenesthes oblongomaculatus, Oxylia argentata languida, Coptosia ganglbaueri, Cryptalus parreysi are taxa at the margins of their area of distribution. Pontia chloridice is an important threatened taxon according to Heath (1981) and Koomen & van Helsdinger (1996) and also listed on the CORINE (1991) threatened species list. Empusa fasciata is an important (Koomen & van Helsdinger, 1996) threatened taxon listed on the European Red List of Globally Threatened Animals and Plants.Notes: The snake Macrovipera lebetina lebetina is included in section 3.3 as Vipera lebetina.NOTE: The Cyprus populations of Propomacrus bimucronatus, which has been accepted as new addition to Annex II (Dir. 92/43/EEC), have recently been assigned to Propomacrus cypriacus, a new species endemic to Cyprus. P. cypriacus is important as it is one of the three representatives of the genus Propomacrus in the world (the other 2 are P. davidi in SE China and P. bimucronatus in the E. Mediterranean).
