The regular cutting of osiers producing uniform poles and timbers used in causeways, such as at Flag Fen, goes back at least to the Bronze by: 2.

The main ecological filters affecting the assembly of a peat-forming community have been found to be the properties of residual peat, the microtopography created by peat.

Lowering the water table increases the aerobic portion of the peat strata (the "acrotelm"), leading to an increased decomposition rate and subsidence of the peat. through the e xtensive practice of peat cutting dur ing the 19 th century, and t hat t he public awareness of the significance of the bones and ant l ers found, prior to the birth of the m odern.

The vegetation groups, Vgs 1–11, as distinguished in Table 1, are connected by different successional processes ().These include well-documented processes such as progressive secondary successions, from wet grasslands through to reed- and sedge communities, and regressive successions following eutrophication, drainage, land use intensification and peat Cited by: The peat banks are rarely clear on the ground but can sometimes be discerned on aerial photographs.
