|91A0 Old sessile oak woods with Ilex and Blechnum in the British Isles|
|Coedydd Llawr-y-glyn is one of several sites representing old sessile oak woodland in the core of its Welsh range. It comprises a group of woodland blocks set around a series of connected valleys. The woods are primarily of sessile oak Quercus petraea with a typical acidic ground flora of bilberry Vaccinium myrtillus, wavy hair-grass Deschampsia flexuosa and abundant bryophytes. However, there is much local variation in woodland structure and floristics. Notable species include oak fern Gymnocarpium dryopteris, beech fern Phegopteris connectilis and the lichen Thelotrema lepodinum. The site also has an outstanding bird assemblage.|
