Our Wetlands Heritage (2010)

Published by Irish Wildlife Trust, with support from the Heritage Council. The island of Ireland is famous for its wet climate. We receive more rain than can be evaporated from the surface, which maintains our many kinds of wetland; marshes, swamps, bogs, fens, turloughs, salt marshes, estuaries, lagoons and wet woodland carr are just some of the wetland types, each with its own ecosystem which are outlined in this publication.
