SUMMARY OF THE VEGETATION IN KOUFONISI

The prevailing vegetation is low, bushy, steppic and with many species, rare in the Greek and Cretan environments.

Very characteristic is the Helianthemmum stipulalum, the Lygeum spartum (a type of grass from North Africa), Austragalus peregrinus (typical in the South Mediterranean region) and the rare Erodium classifolium, which is found in the northernmost part.
