446. For Peat’s Sake: The Importance of Peatlands and Bogs

Description

Peatlands are a vitally important ecosystem as they play such a major role in both the hydrological and carbon cycles. The numerous threats to peatlands are evaluated emphasising how fast peatlands are being degraded and destroyed by human actions. The Geo Factsheet concludes with three very useful case studies, which emphasise the diversity within the ecosystem and also outline strategies for their conservation and management.
