Seminar - Sphagnum Reintroduction in Practice
Wednesday, 11 June 2014, Manchester Metropolitan University
On 11 June, practitioners and researchers got together to discuss the reintroduction of Sphagnum to peat bogs. Focusing on what methods are currently being used and what research is in place to support Sphagnum reintroduction, the event brought together current thinking on best available techniques and where we need to go from here.
