North Atlantic moist mixed forests

WWF Abstract

The interiors of the islands that make up this ecoregion are dominated by blanket bogs in which peat, rather than soil, predominates. Peat supports many interesting species, and lies directly on top of the bedrock, so where there is no peat, the bare rock is exposed. Close to the Atlantic Ocean, sand dune grassland communities unique to Europe can be found.
