Irish peatlands

Peatland research has expanded rapidly in the last two decades as peatlands are studied as dynamic parts of the landscape, undergoing continual changes through biogeochemical processes, as well as through human activity and climatic variability. To achieve an analytical review beyond state of art, this project will collate a wealth of information from multi-disciplinary sources to present key findings under the main research themes.
