Vegetation - Flora

In Poros, just like on the other islands of the Saronic, the condition is obviously better, as far as the natural environment is concerned, comparative to Attica. Almost the entire surface of the island, except the sections of the North- North-east side of it, is covered by pine trees.

On the north- north-east side of the island, there are olive groves and some farms with lemon trees and orange trees. In the area of Fousa, are still cultivated some vineyards, by which the great Fousaetian wine is produced. On the north of Fousa, on the mountains, bushes and brushwood are found, with the most dominant, the oak trees, the lentisks, the bretia and the bearberries, while in the peninsula of Bisti, the venies dominate.

Sfairia is triangular stone palisade that has three sides. The beds of stone are of trachyte and the vegetation is almost non-existing. Nowadays, it has no natural source of water. Its coasts have totally 3.650 m. length and are extended towards three directions. It is volcanic and came from an explosion of the volcano, from which Methana also came, during the pre-historic years.

Fauna

The geologic bedrock (limestone), the physiognomy of the flora and the climatic conditions do not allow the existence at the area o f a big variety of species of land fauna and bird-fauna. The species that are noticed are rabbits, wild bunnies, badgers, mice, hedgehogs, turtles and ferrets. On the opposite Troizinia, there are also wolves, coyotes and foxes.

In the whole Troizinia, from the side of lizards, the tree snake (dragkolia), the asp, the arrow snake, and rarely the viper live there.

From the side of birds, there are many in the area, like the crow, the swallow, the swift, the sparrow, the owl, the gkionis, the gowk, the sea bird, the wild dove, the wagtail, the butcher bird, the kotsifi, the redneck, the karakaxa and various other singing birds, like the chaffinch, the goldfinch, the greenfinch.

Also, the emigrating birds that visit the island are the trugoni, the quail, the babbler, the woodcock, the apiarist bird and the fig eater.

The marine ecosystem of the era is healthier than the one of the North side of the Saronic and presents a pretty big variety of population and species.

Among these, the main species that have been found are: the alevin, the sardine, the atherine, the gauros, the butt fish, the boneto, the red mullet, the koutsomoura, the codfish, the mullet, the goby, the mackerel, the safridi, the kolios, the sparos, the brassie, the bass, the khan, the sargos, the scorpio fish, the lithrini, the barren fish, the rofos, the sfyrida, the synagrida, the lauraki, the tsipoura, the octopus, the cuttle-fish, the devil fish, the moray eel, the mougri, the garfish and many other different species of sea kinds.

Lately, it has also been developed in the area an organized fish-culture and nowadays, five units function already that breed the lauraki and the tsipoura with satisfactory odds.
