carr

carr A locally variable term, of Scandinavian origin, used to describe wet habitats, usually with some peat development but with neutral (not extremely acidic) waters and with good nutrient status. In East Anglia, England, the name refers especially to wooded wet areas, typically alder woods (Alnus glutinosa); but where nutrient levels are less favourable, willow, particularly Salix cinerea, may be the principal tree species. Elsewhere the term refers more generally to fenland. See also FEN. Compare BOG.
