  • Cover: decimal values can be entered
  • Caves: for habitat types 8310, 8330 (caves) enter the number of caves if estimated surface is not available.
  • Data quality: G = 'Good' (e.g. based on surveys); M = 'Moderate' (e.g. based on partial data with some extrapolation); P = 'Poor' (e.g. rough estimation)

Other Site Characteristics

La isla de Alborán, de origen volcánico y reducidas dimensiones (614 m de longitud por 280 m en su zona más ancha) se ubica en el centro del mar de Alborán y constituye la parte emergida de una cordillera submarina que se extiende mas de 100 km en dirección NE-SO. Se encuentra rodeada por una extensa meseta (con una anchura máxima de 10 km), plana y relativamente somera (<200 m de profundiad) que se extiende unos 45 km en dirección NE-SO.

4.2 Quality and importance

Espacio importate para especies de la Directiva 2009/147/CE, especialmente para las aves marinas; destacando la gaviota de Audoin (Larus audouinii) por contar en la isla con una importante colonia reproductora, siendo además la única colonia reproductora en Andalucía. Otra ave nidificante en la isla es la gaviota patiamarilla (Larus michahellis). Además,a nivel de flora, la isla destaca la presncia de varias especies endémicas: Anacyclus alboranensis, Senecio alboranicus y Diplotaxis siettiana, siendo esta última una especie de interés comunitario (Directiva92/43/CEE).
