Flora of Rum: An Atlantic Island Reserve
This new flora provides a detailed account of the stoneworts, bryophytes, ferns and flowering plants of the island. It's oceanic climate and nutrient poor but varied soils encourage a distinctive flora, rich in bryophytes and an unusual mix of flowering plants, with some rare species elsewhere being more abundant here and vice versa. Includes background material on climate, geology, vegetation and the history of Rum. The book is based on a critical assessment of historical records, work initiated by Nature Conservancy and it's successors, as well as a recent survey at the tetrad (2 x 2 km square) scale.
