This report is concerned largely with ombrotrophic peatlands (mires irrigated directly and more-or-less exclusively by precipitation inputs, ie., rain, snow, fog, etc.) and particularly with those known as "raised bogs", although some consideration is also given to restoration of fen peat workings. The report provides guidance on the potential for the restoration of worked-out or damaged bogs to regenerate, maintain or increase their nature conservation value and on the possible approaches, practicality, and requirements that may be appropriate to facilitate this process. It provides background information and scientific advice for formulating and implementing restoration strategies for the after-use of currently worked or abandoned cut-over bogs.
