Annex I habitats that are a primary reason for selection of this site

7110 Active raised bogs  * Priority feature
Dogden Moss lies in an upland, rather than the more typical lowland, setting and is one of the few raised bogs of significant extent in south-east Scotland. The vegetation reflects the relatively low rainfall of its eastern location, but nonetheless supports the scarce bog-moss Sphagnum imbricatum as well as more typical species such as cranberry Vaccinium oxycoccos.
