The Flora of Rum 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 history.
