6. Peatland conservation

6.3. Threat: Energy production and mining

Texte intégral

Unknown effectiveness (limited evidence)

Replace blocks of vegetation after mining or peat extraction

  • Plant community composition: Two studies, in a bog in the UK and a fen in Canada, reported that transplanted blocks of peatland vegetation retained their overall community composition: over time in the UK, or relative to an undisturbed fen in Canada.

  • Vegetation cover: One before-and-after study in the UK reported that bare peat next to translocated bog vegetation developed vegetation cover (mainly grasses/rushes). Sphagnum moss cover declined in the translocated blocks. One site comparison study in a fen in Canada reported that replaced vegetation blocks retained similar Sphagnum and shrub cover to an undisturbed fen.

  • Assessment: unknown effectiveness — limited evidence (effectiveness 60%; certainty 35%; harms 10%). Based on evidence from: bogs (one study); fens (one study).
