About this book

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. 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, Peatland Restoration and Ecosystem Services focuses on how peatland restoration can foster climate change mitigation. Featuring a range of global case studies, opportunities for reclamation and sustainable management are illustrated throughout against the challenges faced by conservation biologists. Written for a global audience of environmental scientists, practitioners and policy makers, as well as graduate students from natural and social sciences, this interdisciplinary book provides vital pointers towards managing peatland conservation in a changing environment.

Media reviews

"[...] This very timely volume brings together world-class experts from science, policy and practice to highlight and debate the importance of peatlands worldwide. [...] This is a much-needed interdisciplinary book the provides essential direction towards managing and restoring peatland in a changing global environment. Usefully too, there are chapters that address cultural and knowledge-archival aspects of peatlands – subjects which are frequently overlooked. Overall, this volume will be a standard text for the subject and hopefully will resonate beyond the core groupings of peatlands scientists, researchers and practitioners."
– Ian D. Rotherham, BES Bulletin, 49(1)
