The Importance of Peatlands

June 15 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

In this talk, Brian Eversham will cover the range and biodiversity of British peatlands, and their conservation. Going back to Brian’s roots in southern Yorkshire, this talk reviews the battle to save Britain’s largest lowland raised peatbogs, Thorne and Hatfield Moors.  It covers the range of peatland wildlife, from birds to insects to amoebae, flowers to fungi, their habitats, and the progress in restoring peatlands across Britain in the last 30 years, starting with the Great Fen.
