Orange, A. (2009) Saxicolous lichen and bryophyte communities in upland Britain. JNCC Report 404. ISSN 0963 8091.

 

A phytosociological classification of the lichen and bryophyte communities growing on rock in the British uplands. A total of 83 communities was distinguished, including 56 on siliceous rock and 27 on limestone. As is commonly experienced in phytosociological work, delimitation of communities was not straightforward - variation in response to many independent environmental variables precludes a simple system of classification. Despite these problems, the classification is a significant advance on earlier phytosociological knowledge of the lower plant communities of the British uplands.
