Chemical studies on the soils and vegetation of waterlogged habitats in the English Lake District

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

A study has been made of the nutrient status of some waterlogged soils and their plants in the English Lake District. In passing from relatively inorganic lake muds through semi-aquatic soils to raised bog peats, the amt. of soil acids increases, base saturation declines, and humus N also falls. The changes are most marked at the transition from semi-aquatic to raised bog peats. These changes are reflected in the plants, those from underwater sites being highest in minerals and N and those from raised bogs lowest in both these constituents.
