Other Site Characteristics

The site consists of 2 major islands, Folegandros and Sikinos, and of 4 islets, Kardiotissa, Kalogeroi and Adelfia (2 islets close to each other). Their main characteristics are: 1) The typical rock surfaces and sea cliffs that exhibit an endemic flora and an important avifauna; 2) The typical aegean phrygana vegetation; 3) The balanced, although nowadays limited, traditional cultivations of cereals and legumes; 4) The degraded stony biotope; 5) The relatively restricted but ever expanding building activities and road construction triggered by tourism development.Falco eleonorae population values are based on LIFE - Nature «Δράσεις προστασίας για τον Μαυροπετρίτη Falco eleonorae στην Ελλάδα» (LIFE03 NAT/GR/000091)

4.2 Quality and importance

The site consists a typical cycladian ecosystem as it is exhibiting the following characteristics: 1) High degree of flora (mainly) and fauna endemism; 2) Breeding seabirds and raptors. Species of concern include Puffinus yelkouan, Hieraaetus fasciatus, Falco eleonorae, Falco peregrinus and Emberiza caesia. 3) Important birds' refugees on cliffs and on islets; 4) Mosaic habitat distribution; 5) Balanced small cultivated fields; 6) Isolation from the mainland. 7) Cave refugees for Monachus monachus. OTHER IMPORTANT SPECIES WITH MOTIVATION D Plants: Helichrysum orientale and Lactuca acanthifolia are endemic to the Aegean region. The species Tordylium hirtocarpum is protected by the Greek Law (Presidential Decree 67/81). Senecio bicolor is a chasmophyte with a restricted geographical area of distribution forming isolated populations with local differentiation (scattered in the Mediterranean, Cyclades, Kythira, Nisyros, Chios).
