Bog Environment Research project : Impacts of restoration and management of raised bogs on biodiversity Intact raised bog systems are not present anymore in The Netherlands and most of the West-European raised bog landscapes are destroyed or changed dramatically due to peat cutting, dehydration and nutrient enrichment.
Bog peat fills the remainder of the basin. Growth of the bog does not necessarily stop at this stage for, if rainfall is sufficient, the water-retaining properties of Sphagnum are sufficient to maintain a wet, stagnant environment above the original water table represented by the lake surface.
A bog is a wetland of soft, spongy ground consisting mainly of partially decayed plant matter called peat. Plants are a major source of carbon in the environment. By creating new bogs, millions of tons of carbon are sequestered. The world’s peat bogs sequester more than 200 billion tons of carbon.
In bog environments nutrient recycling is limited by the chemical and biological properties of the bog. Decay and leaching occur slowly in the bog. An example of the incomplete recycling of nutrients is what happens to nitrogen in …
