On the other hand, the lagoons that are Mitrikou, Valtos, Elos, Ptelea, Alyki, Karatza, Xirolimni, Lafri-Lafrouda and Porto lagos are saline. Lake Messi and Lafri-Lafrouda have salinas (Nea Kessani). There are different habitats: large reedbeds all around, Tamarix scrubs (largest in Greece), salt marshes, dunes, bordering macchia hills and also agricultural cultivation extending close to the wetland plain and a bordering by tertiary hills. In the north tertiary Rodopi mountains are raised. There is also an alluvial Delta.

4.2 Quality and importance

The wetlands under consideration either seen as one ecological unit and a great wetland complex, or considered each one separately still have a great ecological value for Greece and Europe. Remarkable is their diversity in biotopes and wildlife species, as well as the important bird populations existing here. Several bird species have their national strong holds here. Moreover, the total greek and european populations of others, breed in those wetlands, that are protected by Ramsar Convention. They also consist IUCN Directory site and are classified as Type I Bird site. Concerning the fauna the quality of the site is indicated by the occurrence of the mammal Vulpes vulpes which is referred to Corine biotopes project 1988. Technical Handbook vol.1.Concerning the wild growning plants the quality of the site is indicated by the occurrence of other important taxa.
