Limni Paralimniou (CY3000008)
Limni Paralimniou is a natural depression situated on an extended flat, elevated area; it is a shallow, brackish, seasonal wetland which is flooded during the winter months and dries-up during the summer months, except for few small ponds (mapped as water body) to the south and west edges of the marsh which can hold water for a longer period. The site covers an area of 272,56 ha and is located to the southeast part of the island; the east part of the site is bordered by Pralimni town and the southwest part by Sotira village, while a considerable part to the west of the site consists of cultivations; also, the site extends eastwards, along a narrow stream towards Paralimni. Geology: The bedrock of Paralimni Lake consists of Bentonitic clays, which are occasionally mixed with Mamonia lithologies, forming Moni mιlange. Bentonitic clays are covered by a thin layer of recent lake deposits, consisting of loose sandy clayey and silts/silty clays. The surroundings of the lake are composed of alternating layers of chalks, marly chalks and chert (Lefkara Formation), which cover the Bentonitic clays around the lake. The greatest part of the lake (c 85%) consists of halophilous and halo-nitrophilous pioneer therophytic communities (1310); they are characterised by Hordeum marinum, Salicornia europaea, Halopeplis amplexicaulis, Parapholis incurva, Crypsis aculeata, Spergularia marina, Mesembryanthemum nodiflorum and Cressa cretica. Thermo-Mediterranean riparian galleries dominated by Tamarix tetragyna, are generally confined along the periphery of the lake.
Alykos Potamos-Agios Sozomenos (CY2000002)
The site is situated at the NE part of Cyprus at the area of Skoulli village and includes the river of Chrysochou, from Skoulli village up to the sea of Chrysochou bay near Polis Chrysochous. The site is composed of two parts; the large one consists of the river and the small one of an oak stand. The climate of the area is dry and temperate with a rainfall of 400-600 mm and mean annual temperature of the colder month from 3-6 °C. The geological substrate is alluvium-colluvium. The river is flanked all along its course by hydrophilous riparian vegetation consisting of Platanus orientalis and Alnus orientalis forests (92C0), Salix alba galleries (92A0), Nerium oleander and Tamarix smyrnesis galleries (92D0) and reedbeds (CY02). Communities composed of Lythrum junceum, Inula viscosa, Polygonum equisetiforme, Foeniculum vulgare, Lamium amplexicaule and the endemic Mentha longifolia ssp. cyprica develop at a small part of the river with intermittent flow (3290).
