3. FORMATION OF PEATS - FAO

In classifying peat, use is often made of the nature of original material, this being either moss-like (Sphagnum), grass-like (sedges, saw-grass, papyrus), reeds, bush or forest. For reclamation purposes such distinctions are relevant and they are dealt with under the appropriate heading in Chapter 4.
