Lowland Peat Bogs have been under constant pressure for hundreds
of years - drained for agriculture, mined for fuel and for peat.
Now there is only a fraction of the former extent of lowland bogs
that there once was, but those that remain are amongst the richest
habitats we possess in terms of biodiversity.
The pages below give some details on the ecology of peat bogs,
and the industries that threaten them.
