  • S: in case that the data on species are sensitive and therefore have to be blocked for any public access enter: yes
  • NP: in case that a species is no longer present in the site enter: x (optional)
  • Type: p = permanent, r = reproducing, c = concentration, w = wintering (for plant and non-migratory species use permanent)
  • Unit: i = individuals, p = pairs or other units according to the Standard list of population units and codes in accordance with Article 12 and 17 reporting (see reference portal)
  • Abundance categories (Cat.): C = common, R = rare, V = very rare, P = present - to fill if data are deficient (DD) or in addition to population size information
  • 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); VP = 'Very poor' (use this category only, if not even a rough estimation of the population size can be made, in this case the fields for population size can remain empty, but the field "Abundance categories" has to be filled in)

4.1 General site character

Habitat class % Cover

Total Habitat Cover

0

Other Site Characteristics

The area is located at the souther part of Crete on the south-east borders of Chania Prefecture. It comprises the Kallikratis and Argouliano gorges and the Manika plateu. The site has a complex geomorphological structure. Gorges, ravines and plateaus, mostly at the higher altitudes, combined with low human activity have resulted in the creation and maintainance of very important natural habitats.

4.2 Quality and importance

This is an important site for raptors and species occuring in srcub.
