The author discusses bog development and peat accumulation as it commonly occurs in Britain, plus some chemical aspects of bog ecology, and gives a general view of some ways in which major ecological factors may influence the course of bog development in various parts of the world. Factors of major importance include the effects of rainfall, climatic fluctuation, temperature, atmospheric nutrient supply, wind, topography and its influence upon water flow and nutrient supply, and both physical and chemical aspects of geologic relationships and human cultural operations.
