The term ‘mire’ is now widely accepted as the appropriate term for peatlands which still display the features associated with active peat formation. It is, however, difficult to determine whether any given site is actually accumulating peat at any specific moment in time. The presence of vegetation which is normally peat forming has thus been proposed and been widely adopted as a pragmatic means of identifying the presence of mires – i.e. peatland systems still capable of accumulating peat.
