Annex I habitats that are a primary reason for selection of this site
|7130 Blanket bogs (* if active bog) * Priority feature|
|Flow of Dergoals is one of four sites representing Blanket bogs in south-west Scotland and displays well-developed surface patterning. It has distinct hollows with Sphagnum cuspidatum, though these are quite small and represent a comparatively small proportion of the bog surface. It is more generally dominated by a combination of low-ridge and high-ridge, with occasional Sphagnum hummocks and bog-rosemary Andromeda polifolia. The carpet is dominated by Sphagnum magellanicum and S. papillosum rather than S. tenellum.|
