This study presents a report on the flora of the most extreme of the areas of late snow lie in the Scottish Highlands where bryophytes tend to dominate the vegetation. 58 snow-bed sites were surveyed throughout the Highlands and all phanerogams and bryophytes recorded along with their relative abundance; examples of these surveys are given in an appendix. In addition, the vegetation on 141 samples was recorded along with various environmental factors. The sample and site data were then analysed using TWINSPAN and DECORANA to produce a classification and ordination of both snow-bed sites and snow-bed plant communities.
