Full Description


This volume brings together recent research on the processes in mires, including their physical, chemical, hydrological and palaeoenvironmental properties. This research is examined in the context of the exploitation of the peat resource and more recently the attempts to conserve and regenerate the remaining mire remnants. The contributors attempt to integrate the basis of mires research with the practical requirements of understanding how peat resources have been used and how they might be protected and best managed
