Cyprus Habitats

Cyprus has a surprising large number of habitats for its size. This has resulted in the existence of a collection of ecosystems, adding to the richness of biodiversity on the island. Habitats range from a) the coast, sand dunes and rocky coastline, to b) wetlands, streams and lakes, c) shrublands, d) cultivated land (which includes cereal fields, orchards, vineyards, each with its own collection of inhabitants), e) desert like inland uncultivated or rocky land, and f) forests (mostly pine forests).Besides these six general categories, there are subcategories of habitats, discussion of which is outside the scope of this introductory site. It must be noted that one should not expect to find the same collection of inhabitants in two different places that have the same habitat, as there are many factors that influence nature.
