Floral Biodiversity of Crete
Please provide clear photographs, location/altitude and date of spotting. Any notes on surrounding habitat/land use and soil type would also be useful, if possible. If the species is rare or endangered, please do not specify the exact location, just a general location. Sign in to join mission
Crete has a special and unique flora with a very high level of biodiversity and many endemic species, plus some unique habitats. The aim of this mission is to observe and record floral biodiversity in Crete, including endemic and naturalised species. Spottings can include flowering and non-flowering plants, shrubs and trees, plus fungi. Spottings can also include Cretan "heirloom" or unique varieties of crop plants (trees, fruit, vegetables, herbs, cereals, etc.). Plants known to provide nectar, pollen, resin or other substances for honeybees are of special interest also. I hope the information gathered can be used towards conservation of the Cretan biodiversity and habitats.
