Amongst reprofiled plots, those with slopes covered in plastic sheeting contained more Sphagnum shoots (629/m 2) than those without sheeting (469/m 2). In May 1995, nine 8 m 2 plots (three blocks of three) were established on bare rewetted peat. Six plots (two plots/block) were situated at the base of excavated slopes (i.e. in the point of a 1 m deep “V”). Three plots (one plot/block) were ...

Additionally, shoot density was significantly higher in plots reprofiled into depressions before sowing (with plastic sheeting: 629 shoots/m 2; without plastic sheeting: 469 shoots/m 2) than in plots that remained at surface level (146 shoots/m 2). In May 1995, three blocks of three 8 m 2 plots were established on bare rewetted peat.

Lancashire Mosslands IUCN UK Peatland Programme

Sensitive to the impact of surrounding land uses and drainage, the Lancashire Mosslands require a well-thought out and effective restoration programme. Re-levelling, peat bunding, plastic piling, plygene sheeting, peat plugs, large tree pulling, scrub removal, ditch re-profiling and scrapes are all being used as and when appropriate.

Many peatlands exhibit strong vertical patterns in K sat in the top 0.5–1.0 m of the peat profile, with the shallowest layers often being several orders of magnitude more permeable than those below [Kneale, 1987; Waddington and Roulet,1997;Fraser et al., 2001; Clymo, 2004].

Peatlands are characterized by an anoxic catotelm, where water-logged conditions and high acidity inhibit biological processes, suppressing decompo-sition and enabling organic material to accumulate (for example, Freeman and others 2001; Belyea and Baird 2006). Since the end of the last ice age, peatlands have acted as a net sink for carbon dioxide (C02) wherever decomposition has been
