|Across the Wet Woodland, six separate areas were
identified for survey. The areas were chosen because of the differences in soil,
light and drainage.
In total there are 70 different plant
species across the Wet Woodland, making it very diverse. 14 of these are mosses
making them highly significant throughout the Wet Woodland.
Two of the six areas, the Stony Area and the Clearing, were found to
have the most species, 27 in all. Much of the diversity in the Stony Area is due to
the high number of mosses (11). However, these were sparse and spread widely across
the area. The comparatively high plant diversity of the Clearing is due to the
junction of habitats within the area.
The Seepage Area is very distinct from the others and contains many
different species because it is very wet.
