Abstract

During the final stage of the Irish-Dutch raised bog study (1989-2001) an effort was made to integrate aspects of vegetation, water quality and hydrology. The basic ecological concept used was the ecotope rather than the plant community. This paper describes the two bogs, the ecotypes, followed by hydrological concepts. Afterwards relationships are developed and discussed
