Research output: Book/ReportBookProfessional

Abstract

Reports on detailed studies in Raheenmoor Bog and Clara Bog, both in County Offaly, that were performed between 1989 and 2001. Containing a wealth of information on the two sites, including regional geology, regional hydrology, bog hydrology, and vegetation ecology, with much attention to hydrochemistry, this book includes an extra chapter on `soaks', areas of mesotrophic or minerotrophic vegetation, occurring on otherwise ombrotrophic bog, which are usually associated with internal drainage systems. An overview is given of the relationships between biotic and abiotic conditions, again with much attention for hydrology and hydrochemistry.
