Bogs and fens are wetlands that have formed on top of dead or decaying plant material. Bogs receive their moisture from rain and show, are low in nutrients and acidic making it hard for many plants to grow. Fens receive their water from precipitation and groundwater; they have more nutrients than bogs and are less acidic. Bogs are covered with sphagnum moss and have insect eating plants. The most common plants found in fens are reeds, sedges and grasses.
