The 8th IUCN UK Peatland Programme conference poster session showcased key pieces of research related to peatlands and/or the provision of public benefit through land management. Presentations provided insight into some of the issues around peatland policy, science, monitoring and management, in addition to sharing research on quantifying, monitoring and rewarding provision of public benefit.
We are grateful to all presenters and delighted to share the following presentations with accompanying Abstracts:
