About this book

Language: Spanish with English executive summary

This book is the result of the project "An inventory of the Patagonian Peatlands: towards the wise use and biodiversity conservation", which aimed to improve the knowledge level of these ecosystems of Patagonia, as a first step in the process of their inventory and wise use in Argentina and Chile.

The book compiles the results and the information produced by the Patagonian Peatlands project, with the aim of making them easily available to stakeholders, academic community and general public. The volume starts with a section of general remarks, including the adopted Spanish terminology and the introduction to the main features of the Patagonian peatlands. It follows the zonation of the region in six peatland zones, as a first step in the inventory process. In a second step and given the vast extension of the Patagonia, a "view modules" approach was used to exemplify with a greater scale the different peatland types occurring within Argentina and Chile. For both countries an exhaustive revision of background studies is included as separated chapters.

The volume also includes a section with information on birds, mammals and macroinvertebrates inhabiting the Sphagnum bogs of Tierra del Fuego, as well as a chapter dealing with peatland benefits, current uses and conservation in Argentina. A final chapter is dedicated to peatlands as wetlands of special concern for the Ramsar Convention.
