Bogs are widely distributed throughout the tundra and are dominated by sphagnum mosses (Sphagnum), towards the south to such a great extent that bogs of sphagnum mosses tend to replace the bogs of species of mosses belonging to the order Hypnobryales, which are the most common in the more northerly latitudes.
