"Moor" in context

Moor is a term describing the habitat of shrubland found in areas with low level of rainfall, typically with peat soils that develop in cool, acidic climates subject to domination by a species of heather as well as grasses, heath and gorse. This type of environment is found extensively in areas of northwestern Europe, particularly in Ireland, Scotland and northern England.

Moor is a landscape that can appear to have a barren quality, although this is misleading; the heaths, grasslands, bogs and fens provide abundant wildlife and offer natural beauty of their own.
