Other Site Characteristics

Laghi costieri di grande interesse naturalistico oltre che paesaggistico per essere posti in prossimità di Capo Peloro sullo stretto di Messina. Floristicamente non presentano un particolare interesse, in quanto le piante che si insediano in questa area umida sono in massima parte abbastanza comuni nell'isola. Si tratta perlopiù di elofite, alofite e idrofite, che non costituiscono delle particolari associazioni a causa del forte disturbo antropico e del fatto che la fascia in cui si localizzano è piuttosto stretta e non consente il differenziarsi di cenosi. Dal punto di vista idro-geologico si tratta di un'area depressa con fondali rocciosi frammisti a limo e sabbia alimentata da acque marine attraverso dei canali di collegamento con la riva e da acque meteoriche. Sotto il profilo climatico l'area risulta interessata da un bioclima termomediterraneo subumido con precipitazioni medie annue intorno agli 800 mm e temperature medie annue di 18 °C.

4.2 Quality and importance

Laghi costieri di grande interesse naturalistico, oltre che paesaggistico, per essere localizzati in prossimità di Capo Peloro sullo Stretto di Messina. Il perimetro comprende aree che rivestono un'importanza strategica nell'economia dei flussi migratori dell'avifauna che si sposta nell'ambito del bacino del Mediterraneo. I laghi di Faro e Ganzirri infatti offrono rifugio ed opportunità trofiche alle specie in migrazione, in particolare agli Uccelli acquatici, e per alcune di esse rappresentano anche dei significativi siti di nidificazione. L'area è interessata inoltre da un ampio flusso migratorio di Fringillidi, sia in periodo primaverile che autunnale. Da non sottovalutare infine la particolare malacofauna di questi ambienti lacustri, che ospita popolazioni talora molto differenziate ed esclusive di questo particolarissimo ecosistema acquatico.
