Re-wetting of drained fens can release phosphorus, introducing a eutrophication risk for associated aquatic ecosystems. Characterisation of the different forms of organic and inorganic bound phosphorus in the peat is an important step towards the development of tools for assessing the level of risk attached to individual rewetting projects. In the work reported here, a sequential extraction (fractionation) method was used to distinguish the following P binding forms:
