This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1900 edition. Excerpt: ... Ebulus, and Convolvulus septum. To the Atlantic type belong seven species--Hypericum Androsaemum. Rhyncospora fusca. Sedum anglicum. Hymenophyllum Tunbridgense. Carum verticillatum. unilaterale. Pinguicula lusitanica. To the intermediate type belongs Vicia Orobus, and to the local type Utricularia intermedia. The former is rare, the latter is common, occurring up to 1000 feet, and in some localities is the prevalent species of the genus. There is no native plant in the district which belongs to the Germanic type. The only species of this type, Weingmrtneria (Corynephorus) canescens, occurring in two localities in Arisaig, was introduced by the late Mr. iEneas Macdonell, Morar. The remaining species belong to the British type. Ranunculus repens, L.--This species is limited to ground near cultivation, and to roadsides. Cochlearia officinalis, L.--Only occurs inland on some islands in a hill loch where gulls breed. The seeds have probably been carried attached to the birds' feet, or on decayed fish brought by them from the shore. Sagina procumbens, L.--Specimens are occasionally to be found with spinous ciliate leaves; the ciliation varies much in quantity, being confined to one or two leaves, or occurring on all. Sagina nodosa, Fenzl.--The glandular form is found with the typical plant. This species only occurs near the shore. Spergula arvensis, L.--The only form of this plant which I have seen is var. sativa (Boenn). The following fructicose Rubi are found in the district: --R. fissus, Lindl., R. suberectus, Anders., rare; R. plicatus, W. and N., rather common; R. carpinifolius, W. and X., rather common; R. Lindleianus, Lees, rare; R. pulcherrimus, Neum., locally common; R. dumnoniensis, Bab., locally common; R. villicaulis, Koehl. ( more
