{n} a marsh, fen, morass, soft or wet ground
Freshwater wetlands that are poorly drained and characterized by a buildup of peat
a peat-accumulating wetland that has no significant inflows or outflows of water; all water inputs are from precipitation (snow and rain)
{i} wet spongy ground, marshland; swamp; toilet, lavatory (British)
Wetlands characterized by a waterlogged, spongy mat of sphagnum moss, ultimately producing a thickness of acid peat Bogs are highly acid and tend to be nutrient poor They are typically dominated by sedges, evergreen trees and shrubs
Low marshy land, or fen, often partially and/or periodically covered with water See Blanket bog
A shrubby peatland dominated by shrubs, sedges, and peat moss and usually having a saturated water regime, or a forested peatland dominated by evergreen trees (usually spruces and firs) and/or larch Bogs have a high water table maintained directly by rain and snow Bogs are characterized by acid-loving vegetation, and are often typified by the dense surface cover of aquatic moss
A wet, spongy, poorly drained area which is usually rich in very specialized plants, contains a high percentage of organic remnants and residues and frequently is associated with a spring, seepage area, or other subsurface water source A bog sometimes represents the final stage of the natural processes of eutrophication by which lakes and other bodies of water are very slowly transformed into land areas
A wetland receiving water and nutrients only from atmospheric inputs, dominated by sphagnum mosses and ericaceous shrubs, and characterized by low nutrient and oxygen availability, high acidity, and peat accumulation
A wetland formed where surface drainage is congested Low oxygen levels and soil temperatures cause incomplete decomposition, resulting in the buildup of fibrous peat Only specialized plants can grow in these extreme conditions Mosses (especially Sphagnum spp ), sedges, and lichens can tolerate bog conditions; one or more of these groups form the dominant plant community in a bog The water and soil of Sphagnum bogs are typically highly acidic, which further inhibits decomposition
An area of waterlogged soil that tends to be peaty; fed mainly by precipitation; low productivity; some bogs are acidic
A bog is an area of land which is very wet and muddy
A poorly drained, wet area with very acidic (ph 4 0 or less), peaty soil Bogs receive little or no ground water influence and support vegetation such as sedges, mosses, orchids and black spruce
{s} marshy; wet and spongy
wet spongy ground of decomposing vegetation; has poorer drainage than a swamp; soil is unfit for cultivation but can be cut and dried and used for fuel
cause to slow down or get stuck; "The vote would bog down the house"

A type of wetland with acidic water and soil composed of peat (mostly sphagnum moss)
(SMP) A wet, spongy, poorly drained area which is usually rich in very specialized plants, contains a high percentage of organic remnants and residues and frequently is associated with a spring, seepage area, or other subsurface water source A bog sometimes represents the final stage of the natural processes of eutrophication by which lakes and other bodies of water are very slowly transformed into land areas
To sink, as into a bog; to submerge in a bog; to cause to sink and stick, as in mud and mire
- A peatland MIRE that receives water only from precipitation (rain, snow, fog, etc ) and is as a result NUTRIENT-poor
A wetland that is perched above the watertable and has no direct hydraulic connection to it, bogs accumulate peat and the vegetation is dominated by sphagnum moss
get stuck while doing something; "She bogged down many times while she wrote her dissertation"
A habitat that consists of waterlogged spongy ground Common vegetation are sedges and sphagnum moss Bogs are common in Canada, Russia, and Scandinavia
a type of wetland that builds up peat, has no inflows or outflows of water, has acidic water, and supports acid-loving plants and mosses like sphagnum
A type of wetland that accumulates appreciable peat deposits Bogs depend primarily on precipitation for their water source, and are usually acidic and rich in plant residue with a conspicuous mat of living green moss
Wetland consisting of saturated organic material, such as peat and muck, and plants that tolerate acidic soils, such as sedges and bog laurel
Also known as "muskeg", bogs consist of a thick ground cover layer of sphagnum moss, and may also be covered in a black spruce or larch forest Open water is rare, but the water table is very close to the surface Bogs are acidic and very low in nutrients
wet peatland with black spruce, Labrador tea, and sphagnum mosses
An area of wet peaty substrate rich in organic debris but low in mineral nutrients, with a vegetation of shrubs, sedges, and mosses
{f} get stuck, be stuck in mud
A little elevated spot or clump of earth, roots, and grass, in a marsh or swamp
(a) Waterlogged, spongy ground, consisting primarily of mosses, containing acidic, decaying vegetation that may develop into peat (b) The vegetation characteristic of this environment, esp sphagnum, sedges, and heaths
open or sparsely treed wetland area poor in mineral mutrients where water is supplied exclusively by precipitation; typically acidic
A type of wetland that accumulates appreciable peat deposits They depend primarily on precipitation for their water source, and are usually acidic and rich in plant matter with a conspicuous mat or living green moss

bog body
Any of an informal collection of some 700 variously preserved human remains found over the past 200 years in natural peat bogs, mostly in western Europe. The bodies, including the soft tissues and the stomach contents, remain preserved because of the anaerobic fluid conditions in the bogs. They range chronologically from 8000 BC to early medieval times. That they have been variously found with cut throats, severed limbs, ropes around the neck, and so on suggests the possibility of ritual killings, murders, and ignominious burial (since none was found within a proper grave)
