Caution! "Moor" as a term or name is used for a couple of related but differently defined types of landscapes/landforms/habitats with smooth transitions. The usage strongly varies depending on language, regional/historical/… background, field of science, etc. Please see:
  • Wetlands – overview category, including:
    • Moorlands, bogs and swamps – overview category
    • Bogs (Moor/~Hochmoor in German; also called peatland, mire or quagmire in English) – acid wetlands that accumulate peat (turf)
    • Fens (Moor/~Niedermoor in German) – alkaline bogs/mires, usually fed by mineral-rich surface water or groundwater (sometimes also identified as marshes as part of a different classification)
    • Swamps (colloquially also called "moor" in some languages)
  • Moorland (or moor) – uncultivated, not necessarily wet upland/montane areas that are characterized by low-growing vegetation on acidic soils (like e.g. Dartmoor in England); closely related to more dry/arid heathlands or heath, also related to tundra (but without permafrost)


  • Moors – a historical European designation for a number of associated ethnic groups of Berber and Arab descent from (around) Northern Africa inhabitants
  • Moors (people) – a present day Moors ethnic group
