Reconciling commercial exploitation of peat with biodiversity in peatland ecosystems

Objective

RECIPE is designed to provide information to assist conservationists and managers of peat extraction with options to restore peat accumulation and carbon (C) sequestration in peat land that has either been abandoned or designated for restoration. The objectives will identify combinations of water table, vegetation, microbiology and chemistry favourable to the reestablishment of peat land biodiversity and long-term regeneration. Emphasis will be placed on understanding the relationship between the development of microbial diversity and the processes governing C cycling. By achieving these objectives in the context of current management practices, RECIPE will provide guidelines for sustainable management that will reconcile peat use with the maintenance of biodiversity. The technological output from the project will be transferred to end users in the form of workshops, published papers, web-based information and printed guidelines.
