|9160 Sub-Atlantic and medio-European oak or oak-hornbeam forests of the Carpinion betuli|
|Wormley Hoddesdonpark Woods in south-east England has large stands of almost pure hornbeam Carpinus betulus (former coppice), with sessile oak Quercus petraea standards. Areas dominated by bluebell Hyacinthoides non-scripta do occur, but elsewhere there are stands of great wood-rush Luzula sylvatica with carpets of the mosses Dicranum majus and Leucobryum glaucum. Locally, a bryophyte community more typical of continental Europe occurs, including the mosses Dicranum montanum, D. flagellare and D. tauricum.|
