The vegetation and surface patterns of five ombrotrophic mires from northern Britain were surveyed in some detail to determine the relationships, if any, which existed between the various elements of the microtopography and the vegetation. A total of 22 noda were recognised for the 5 sites, some of which were widely distributed, others were restricted to one site. The noda were found to be closely linked to six identifiable elements in the microtopography. The distribution of these elements and their significance for classification purposes are discussed.
