About this book

Includes detailed guidelines relating to the sustainable use of this valuable resource.
'...essential reading for all those who influence mire and peatland management...' Tobias Salathé, Ramsar Regional Coordinator for Europe.
`...The term "wise use" can raise the hackles of many environmentalists, suspicious of the licence it can offer to continuing encroachment on nature.....Its framework of principles, criteria and checklists for decision-making generally coincides with green aspirations as expressed in most international conventions and resolutions, and as a blueprint for better decisions on peatland it is a remarkable attempt at consensus.' Michael Viney, The Irish Times, February 2003
