A description is given of several surveys of fungal habitats in bare cut-away peat. These surveys are related to one another and to the general surveys of the peat microflora reported in an earlier paper of this series. The response of the peat myco-flora to cultivation of cut-away peat is reported and the colonisation of fresh organic material added to peat is related to this. It is concluded that the level of fungal activity in bare peat is generally low and that cultivation stimulates elements of the myco-flora which would otherwise remain inactive.
