4.2 Quality and importance

The quality and importance of the site result from the following elements: 1) The site is very important for its terrestrial molluscs subfossils. 2) The natural environment is of great aesthetic value due to its singular geomorphology (cliffs, screes, chasms etc) and its coniferous woodland. It is a vicariant chasmophyte found on circa 15 locations in the Aegean. 3) It is the most forested area of Karpathos island. 4) The composition of the rocks (calcareous and siliceous rocks) existing in the site has given rise to a striking combination of calciphile and silicicolous vegetation. The population data for Monachus monachus (3.2.c) refer to the coasts of the whole Karpathos and Saria. OTHER IMPORTANT SPECIES WITH MOTIVATION D: 1) The reptile Hemidactylus turcicus is protected by the Greek Law (Presidential Decree 67/81) 2) The plant species Silene insularis, Campanula carpatha, are all protected by the Greek Law (Presidential Decree 67/81) and are also included in the IUCN Red List of threatened species (1993, Greece; 1988 Europe; and 1993, World) with the characterization Rare.
