      From fire breaks to fire hazards: Human activity and climate change are transforming the world's peatlands state of peat bogs, such as this Alberta peatland that served as a research station. Of all terrestrial ecosystems, peatlands store carbon most effectively in long-term scales of millennia. However, many peatlands have been drained for peat extraction or agricultural use. This converts peatlands from sinks to sources of carbon, causing approx. 5% of the anthropogenic greenhouse effect and additional negative effects on other ecosystem by: 1.

    The current Peatlands of Canada Database was developed in (Tarnocai et al., ) by updating the version of the database (Tarnocai et al., ) using new spatial and site data together with updated information from the peatland component of the Soil Organic Carbon Database (Tarnocai and Lacelle, ).File Size: KB. Toronto, Ontario - July 5, - Peat Resources Limited (TSX VENTURE:PET) has renewed its permits on 19, hectares of peatlands in the Upsala area of northwestern Ontario and has received a Letter of Authority from the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources to carry out surveys and resource evaluations of peatlands in the McFaulds Lake (Ring of Fire) region.

CANADIAN PEAT HARVESTING AND THE ENVIRONMENT SECOND EDITION ISSUES PAPER,No land resources.

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.

Peatlands are referred to by various names such as bogs, fens, and mires. According to the IPS, a mire refers to a peatland where peat is actively being formed (Table ).A bog, also known as an ombrogenous mire, is raised above the surrounding landscape and receives water only from precipitation.A fen, or geogenous mire, is situated in depressions and.

PRESS RELEASE: Peat Moss and Growing Media are Essential Goods. Alberta, Ma As the entire world is battling against the propagation of the coronavirus (COVID), and as borders are being closed, the Canadian Sphagnum Peat Moss Association (CSPMA) addresses concerns regarding this outbreak to growers and governments across North America.

The book has detailed identification info on identifying several dozen plants, but I wish it included more species & maps; even though I understand why the author may not have wanted to include the location of bogs & fens. The book is helpful in describing & /5(7).

Ontario Geological Sur. Conclusions. Peatland development is controlled by both autogenic and allogenic factors. The processes of peat (sediment) accumulation and acidification by Sphagnum result in hydroseral successions towards drier and more oligotrophic conditions. Secondary pattern development is also largely initiated by local biotic factors, with the exception of permafrost by: CLASSIFICATION OF PEAT AND PEATLAND Ma Xuehui Changchun Institute of Geography, Jilin Province, China Hu Jinming Department of Urban and Environmental Science, Peking University, Beijing, China Keywords: peat, peatland, components, peat-forming plants, stratigraphy, classification systems.

Tropical peatland ecosystems consider as a key roles not only in the storage of carbon in forests and peat, but also in controlling water resources and in preserving bio-resources and biodiversity. This assessment on peatland definition is intended to adjust existing definition of peatland and further work to improve the existing peatland map Cited by: 1.

Often more than meters in diameter, they are dominated by low heath shrubs (sheep laurel, bog laurel, Labrador tea, leatherleaf) and patches of sedge and bryophyte lawns.

The IUCN CEM Peatland Specialist Group’s work aims to bring together an international network of experts to share good practice, build consensus on science and encourage national strategies for action to deliver peatland conservation and restoration.

Peatland forests, usually dominated by black spruce, account for roughly 25% of the productive forest land in the central portion of the Boreal Shield Ecozone. These forests often have considerable potential for natural regeneration, and forest harvesting practices have been evolving to take increasing advantage of this potential.

Peat moss is a good organic soil conditioner, assisting in loosening clay soils and in raising moisture retention in sandy soils.

Peat is also used to manufacture containers for plants and tree seedlings. Peatland Inventory From toa major field program was undertaken by the Department of Natural Resources and Energy Development. TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - July 5, ) - Peat Resources Limited (TSXV:PET.V) has renewed its permits on 19, hectares of peatlands in the Upsala area of northwestern Ontario and has.

Peat moss develops in a peat bog or “peatland,” which is a special type of wetland on which decomposing moss has accumulated to a depth of at least 16 inches.

Peat accumulation is around one millimeter (1/25th of an inch) per year.Throughout the book the interactions between organisms and environmental conditions (especially wetness, availability of oxygen, and pH) are emphasized, with chapters on the physical and chemical characteristics of peat, the role of peat as an archive of past vegetation and climate, and peatland succession and development.5/5(2).The peat is extracted using a vacuum harvester and then moved to an area off-site.

As the peat depth decreases with every harvest, more and more drainage is needed, requiring drains to be dug deeper for the next harvest season. Commercial peat extraction’s ultimate outcome is the large area of exposed peatland it leaves behind.
