  • The description and mapping of marine habitat types according to Annex I of Directive 92/43/EOK (EEC, 1992) and / or the European Nature Information System (EUNIS) in 66 of approximately 300 Greek NATURA 2000 network sites, were the subject of Research Work for the Ministry of Environment Planning and Public Works of Greece. This research project, under the name "Identification and description of habitat types at sites of interest for conservation", lasted from 1999 to 2002 and was carried out by the National Centre for Marine Research (NCMR, renamed as Hellenic Centre for Marine Research - HCMR since 2003) in association with the Institute of Marine Biology of Crete (IBCM, joined to HCMR since 2003), the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and the Fisheries Research Institute (FRI). The recognition and imprinting of marine habitat types was based on the combined use of aerial photos of scale 1:5000 acquired during the second half of 1999 for the needs of the project, data from the scientific echo sounder Sea-Bed discrimination system "RoxAnn", phytobenthos samples and in situ observations by scuba diving and underwater cameras. Regarding the sampling, hard bottom samplings were carried out using SCUBA diving. The samples were collected on hard substrates mainly in the upper infralittoral zone (30 to 50 cm below the lowest sea level). For the study of the soft bottom habitats, oceanographic cruses were carried out with the IMBC R/V “Filia”, using a Smith McIntyre sediment sampler.

    The project "Inventario e Cartografia delle Praterie di Posidonia nei Compartimenti Marittimi di Manfredonia, Molletta, Bari, Brindisi, Gallipoli e Taranto" was funded bt the Apulian Region within the framework of the POR 2000-2006. The project was conducted by CRISMA with the involvement of the fischery operators and in cooperation with Nautilus and COISPA cooperatives. The scientific supervision was in charge of Prof. Tursi (Univ. BARI), Prof. Boero (Univ. Lecce), Dr. Gambi (SZN), Dr. Lembo (COISPA), Dr. Sandulli (Univ. Bari) and Dr. Torchia (Nautilus).The fileld surveys were conducted using SSS, two frequence single-beam and ROV with a position accuracy of few meters. A total of 433 transects over more than 2000 km were carried out covering a total surface of about 700 kmq.

  • This file shows the distribution of Annex 1 habitats - mudflats and sandflats not covered by sea water at low tide, coastal lagoons and estuaries - in the Ballyteigue Burrow SAC. Habitat mapping is used to help define the area and range parameters for conservation objectives. Site-specific conservation objectives aim to define favourable conservation condition for Habitats Directive Annex I habitats at a site level.
