||The quality and importance of the site are consist in the following elements:1) It is of great archeological value due to the existence of the ancient town of Thira. 2) The mountain Agios Ilias assembles all the old elements of the island of Santorini (floristic, faunistic and geolological). So, it plays a very important role in species’ dispersion, (especially of the calciphilous ones) to the rest of the island. 3) There are subfossils of terrestrial molluscs. 4) There is a cave with endemic invertebrates; the isopod Schizidium beroni is endemic to the cave. 5) In the two small islands, colonization, although it has already started and reached at a certain degree, is still an evolving process. So, the monitoring and the study of this natural “experiment” of colonization are of great scientific interest.OTHER IMPORTANT SPECIES IN 3.3 WITH MOTIVATION D:Reptiles: The species Hemidactylus turcicus, Podarcis erhardii mykonensis, Telescopus fallax pallidus and Cyrtodactylus kotschyi are protected by the Greek Law (Presidential Decree 67/81); Telescopus fallax pallidus and Podarcis erhardii mykonensis are considered species of Community interest (Directive 92/43/EEC, 21.5.1992).
