Impact Type: Deposition of pollutant
Scottish small-reed (Calamagrostis scotica) is very rare endemic of bogs in north Caithness (Biodiversity Steering Group 1995). No research has been published on this plant, however it is expected to be sensitive to any factors affecting the bog habitat, including atmospheric N deposition.
There is no published research on the impact of pollution on this species.
