Conserving Bogs: The Management Handbook


This is a comprehensive practical manual: a cookbook of methods and techniques to help people effectively manage and conserve bogs. The Handbook has been written with UK peatland conservationists in mind, although it is as useful to any land manager who has control of blanket or lowland raised bog (it does not deal with the management of fenland).
