About this book

In the past two decades there has been considerable work on global climatic change and its effect on the ecosphere, as well as on local and global environmental changes triggered by human activities. From the tropics to the Arctic, peatlands have developed under various geological conditions, and they provide good records of global and local changes since the Late Pleistocene.

The objectives of the book are to analyze topics such as geological evolution of major peatlands basins; peatlands as self sustaining ecosystems; chemical environment of peatlands: water and peat chemistry; peatlands as archives of environmental changes; influence of peatlands on atmosphere: circular complex interactions; remote sensing studies of peatlands; peatlands as a resource; peatlands degradation, restoration, plus more.

Contents

1. Peatlands basins: evolution and structure. 2. The cycles of major elements in peatlands. 3. Geochemistry of peat and pore water. 4. Biodiversity of peatlands and how they have been affected by environmental changes. 5. Peatlands as multi-signal archives of environmental changes. 6. Direct human impact on peatlands: conservation and restoration.
