Review Text

  • By Mr. M. Stagg on 17 June 2014

    I know this material in small parts and the authors have compiled it well, not that I took much notice of peat at Borth, Somerset Levels, UCW, Plynlimon, I was eluviated horizon flow research Wales that is below peat, there is no eluviated horizon left on Mendip, erosion and moorland burned, you cannot Interflow water in mineral charcoal peat (DC Findlay) and Atkinson was dealing with Limestone peat mass of which I saw much in Yorkshire this year. So while peat familiar I wanted after 1970s 1980s research papers reading to follow this book as a summary off the usual environmental lobby of peat cuttings Somerset, Crabtree, Curtis, or Exmoor now largely eroded, Cope, Curtis, or covered in deep heather, 2006, I wished to see the Scots peat around Strath Oykel and Invergarry the upland works which this text is expert on. This fills another gap in literature that experts made then went overseas to work, the emphasis nearly collapsed as with Hydrology and Soils for 30 years. This may bring back the work and show the essential knowledge need. I cannot write much about this book it does not say for itself, read it and discover then safely walk moorlands without damage and watch birdlife in the early morning, many thanks for its publication. Agains lots of areas need study, Boston Lowell is a case I noted. If we understand we may save the essence of landscape natural and artificially formed. This book is a completion and a beginning.
