Abstract: Identified from field, herbarium, and literature surveys, 125 Ohio peatlands, that once covered 32,198 ha in 1900, were re-located and surveyed. In 1991, 2% of these peatlands continued to support typical peatland flora. Of the 98% that have been destroyed, conversion of peatlands to agricultural production (27,478 ha) was the major factor in causing peatland loss.
