Around 9% of the UK land area is blanket peat, found mostly in the uplands. Peat is composed of partially decomposed dead plants with high organic matter content up to 95%. Intact blanket peat provides a range of ecosystem functions including filtering atmospherically-deposited pollutants such as lead, removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere by plant photosynthesis and water storage.
