The most significant species of these rocky places is Anthyllis barba-jovis, a nanophanerophyte with a clearly pioneer nature, showing a high abundance only in correspondence with rocky walls directly influenced by the marine agents (Brullo & De Marco, 1989.)

Vascular plants of the island mainly include therophytes (~ 62 %), hemicryptophytes (~20 %), geophytes (~9 %), chamaephytes (~5.5 %), nanophanerophytes (~2.3 %) and phanerophytes (~1.8 %).
Despite the shallow soils, a large prpoportion of the CR vascular floras are represented by geophytes, chamaephytes, hemicryptophytes and nanophanerophytes with well developed underground systems such as lignotubers, or other Specialised storage and bud-bearing structures (Conceicao and Pirani, 2005; Alves and Kolbek, 2010a).
This community is characterized by Chameophytes (35.71%) nanophanerophytes (21.42%) megaphanerophytes (14%).
