Priority Habitat - Inland Rock Outcrop And Scree Habitats

This priority type includes plant communities that are confined or almost confined to inaccessible ledges on cliffs and crags or to screes and boulders. The predominant controlling factor is the base-status of the rock which determines what the vegetation consists of. There are communities of smaller ferns on small ledges, and in crevices, on screes and boulder-fields, and boulder-scree on sheltered slopes where snow lies late in spring.
