SUMMARY

The vegetation of the saltmarshes, raised-beaches, inland mires, dwarf-shrub heaths, mountains, and woodlands of the Isle of Arran are described using conventional European phytosociological methods. The floristic affinities of these communities with previously delimited units elsewhere in Britain and in western Europe are described, and the problems of assigning many of the Arran communities into the existing central European phytosociological hierarchy are discussed.
