NN2368 : Mound on hillside

Mound on hillside
Mound on hillside
A scientific name is required for these mounds formed by the repeated deposition of territorial marking by generatons of mountain foxes. They are significant, but small, landscape features, and provide a nutrient-rich oasis for blaeberry and rowan in an acid peat environment not usually suited to these plants. Recent deposits can often be found on these mounds, indicating that they are still being used and may still be growing. This one was nearly 1 metre tall. I suggest the term copromons.
