Summary: Trajectories for impacts of revegetation activities on upland blanket bogs.
The principal aim of this study was to produce trajectories in relation to the restoration of blanket bog in the Peak District and South Pennines. It shows how improvements are made in natural capital and ecosystem services including the diversity of blanket bog indicator species, water table height, the amount and timing of peak overland flow during storms, and various measures of water quality and sediment accumulation.
