Themes: Uplands

Uplands cover a wide variety of habitats, so please also look at the pages on specific habitats, such as bogs and peatlands, grassland (for upland rush pasture), moorland, woodland and limestone pavements. Considerable research is also being undertaken on the ecosystem services associated with upland environments.
