  • Description
  • Scope of Supply


Bogs are sites for plants that specialise in soils with a constant surplus of water. Apart from this common feature, peatlands are very different.

For example, raised bogs and fens form different plant communities because of their different living conditions, which we will investigate in this experiment.


  • experiment is part of a complete solution with numerous experiments in the field of ecology
  • Measurements possible indoors and outdoors, for mobile use
  • Especially understandable and didactically prepared description of the experiment (relevance to everyday life, etc.) including protocol questions.
  • Future-oriented teaching: Integration into digital science lessons with tablets or smartphones.
  • Increased motivation of students by using the intuitive measureAPP.
  • Increased media competence.


The students measure the pH value and conductivity of the fen and the raised bog and compare the two values. They also pay special attention to the vegetation and describe the differences.

Learning Objectives

The pupils should recognise that different environmental conditions prevail in the raised and lowland moors and that different plants therefore occur in these moors.
