Review:

"This book is a timely, comprehensive and authoritative overview of recent research on peatland erosion and geomorphological change. It addresses a vacant niche in the wetland literature and takes forward the peatland research agenda in new and interesting directions."
Dan Charman, University of Plymouth

"Peat is one of our most precious natural resources. This important textbook takes us through the many challenges of researching, understanding and restoring peatlands. Timely, instructive and comprehensive, this book has the distinction of being essential to academics as well as practical conservationists concerned with peat."
Des Thompson, Scottish Natural Heritage and Joint Nature Conservation Committee

From the Back Cover:

Beginning with a comprehensive introduction to the history and global significance of peatlands, Geomorphology of Upland Peat offers a detailed synthesis of the existing literature on peat erosion, while incorporating new research ideas and data from two of the leading experts in the field. With damaging effects ranging from the exacerbation of water colour problems and reservoir sedimentation, to the disruption of the major role that peatlands play in the global carbon cycle, the erosion of upland blanket peat is a critical environmental problem.

Presenting the most detailed work on the subject to date, this comprehensive summary is authoritative and accessible and adorned with rich illustrations, photographs and original drawings. While much of the research focuses on upland mires in the UK, the novel approaches and techniques presented in this volume will be of great interest and benefit to those working in a broader context of organic sediments in other environments.
