3518 Restoration of Drained Mires (Å umava National Park, Czech Republic) About 70% of mires in the Šumava Mountains have been influenced by past drainage for variously forestry, agriculture and peat extraction. Since 1999, a comprehensive “Mire Restoration Programme” has been implemented in the Šumava National Park, primarily focused on the disturbed hydrology. The main restoration technique used has been the blocking of drainage ditches. Selected drained and intact mires were also monitored with the aim: (i) to characterise the degradation changes induced by the disturbed hydrology; and (ii) to evaluate the success of restoration. Water-table fluctuations, hydrochemistry of groundwater, surface-water outflow, amount of precipitation and the vegetation on permanent plots have been monitored. Pre-restoration monitoring data had shown differences between drained and intact sites. On drained bog sites, water tables were maintained at lower levels and exhibited higher fluctuations compared to intact sites. Expansion of the more competitive grasses and trees towards the bog expanse was recorded on drained bogs as well as expansion of dwarf shrub vegetation and reduction of Trichophorum lawns and hollow vegetation. Preliminary results from the initial post-restoration phase have shown a rise in the water table, stabilisation of the hydrological regime and some changes in hydrochemistry at restored sites.

3508 RESTOREWETLANDS - Conservation, restoration and durable management in Small Island of Braila, Romania The aim of the project was to guarantee the long-term conservation of priority habitats and species of European importance in the entire area of the SIB Natural Park. This aim would be achieved through the implementation of conservation plans developed in close cooperation with all the interested stakeholders that were engaged during the previous LIFE project. A total area of about 2 949 ha of important habitats would be restored in different areas of the park. Conservation, restoration and durable management in Small Island of Braila, Romania

3472 Review of the Exmoor Mires Restoration Project Final Report The Exmoor Mire Restoration Project (EMRP) 2006-2010 aimed to restore the natural hydrology of degraded blanket bogs on Exmoor by blocking up the network of old drainage ditches. This project will shortly finish and funding has been secured from South West Water for a new and larger †˜Mires on the Moors†™ project which could potentially rewet up to 2,500 hectares of peatland on Exmoor. The EMRP Steering Group commissioned the Countryside and Community Research Institute (CCRI) to undertake an external and independent review of peatland restoration work on Exmoor to help guide future activity. The two main aims of the review were: i) to conduct a review of peatland restoration on Exmoor to date; and ii) to give guidance to the Steering Group on how best to proceed with peatland restoration, while furthering National Park purposes, and having regard to the economic and social well being of the local community.
