Abstract/Summary

A dry matter balance is made for some Spaghnum dominated areas of blanket bog at 575m altitude in the Pennine Hills of Great Britain. Productivity of Sphagnum in pools in about 2.9g dm-2 yr-1, on lawns about 3.4g dm-2 yr-1 and on hummocks about 1.8g dm-2 yr-1. Mean gas loss is about 1.5, 0.9 and 1.3g (CH2) dm-2 yr-1 from the corresponding habitats. Loss in solution averages about 0.2g dm-2 yr-1, but distinction between habitats is not made.
