Peat bogs ‘tougher than we thought’ but may still be vulnerable to rapid or extreme environmental change. Plant communities in European peat bogs are affected by environmental change, but their ecological functioning remains intact. If all peat bogs in the world were to disappear, the amount of CO 2 in the atmosphere would increase by two.

About the Author. Dan Charman is the author of Peatlands and Environmental Change, published by Wiley. Read more.5/5(2). Peatlands and Environmental Change is a rich and well-presented textbook. The text is well composed and readable. It successfully and clearly synthesizes an impressive range of evidence, is abundantly illustrated, and is supported by an extensive list of references.

hydrological and ecological processes and peatland growth, changes in peatlands and their influence on the environment, and resource management issues.

Each chapter is supported by examples from all the main peatland regions and site types including New Zealand. Book Description This book provides an introduction to peatlands for the non-specialist student reader and for all those concerned about environmental protection, and is an essential guide to peatland history and heritage for scientists and enthusiasts.

Synthesizes the evolutionary, ecological, and chemical characteristics of major peatlands, as well as focuses on the environmental changes, from climate changes to surface ares changes due to human.

Due to an awareness of peatlands as a diminishing resource, peatland conservation and rehabilitation has become an important study area.

Peatlands and Environmental Change offers a new approach by considering peatlands as a whole ecosystem, and thereby provides a better understanding of the importance and the consequences of the functioning of peatlands.

Bringing together world-class experts from science, policy and practice to highlight and debate the importance of peatlands from an ecological, social and economic perspective, this book focuses on how peatland restoration can foster climate change mitigation.

Peatlands provide globally important ecosystem services through climate and water regulation or biodiversity conservation. While covering only 3% of the earth's surface, degrading peatlands are responsible for nearly a quarter of carbon emissions from the land use sector.

The magazine consists of about pages with background reports on peat and peatlands, reviews of conferences, news items and books reviews. It also publishes research findings, business reports and internal information on the IPS. New authors [ ].

Peatlands are a type of wetlands which are among the most valuable ecosystems on Earth: they are critical for preserving global biodiversity, provide safe drinking water, minimise flood risk and help address climate change.

Peatlands are the largest natural terrestrial carbon store; the area covered by near natural peatland worldwide (>3 million km 2) sequesters gigatonnes of carbon.View our complete catalog of authoritative Environmental Change & Pollution related book titles and textbooks published by Routledge and CRC Press.

The largest known concentrations of peatland are found in Canada and Alaska, Northern Europe and Western Siberia, Southeast Asia, and parts of the Amazon basin, where more than 10% of the land area is covered with peatlands.
