Abstract

Scottish Natural Heritage has commissioned the University of East London to carry out a
literature review of research relevant to the minimum depth (and type) of peat required for
successful restoration to bog habitat. The review is required to include an assessment of the
likely effects of the application of an average minimum depth rather than a minimum depth
on the success of bog restoration plans - both in relation to the likelihood of successful
establishment of bog vegetation and on the timescales for restoration.

KeywordsPeat; depth; extraction; consent; minimum; residual; bog; ombrotrophic; restoration
