Spatial and temporal trends in carbon storage of peatlands of continental western Canada through the Holocene
Peatlands of continental western Canada (Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba) cover 365 157 km2 and store 48.0 Pg of carbon representing 2.1% of the world's terrestrial carbon within 0.25% of theExpand

Current disturbance and the diminishing peatland carbon sink
[1] Cumulative impacts of disturbances on peatland carbon must be understood to predict future soil carbon stocks, yet the vulnerability and response of peatlands to disturbance have been neglected.Expand

Disequilibrium response of permafrost in boreal continental western Canada to climate change
In the boreal forest of continental western Canada, permafrost is restricted toSphagnum-dominated peatlands on which air photo interpretation reveals the occurrence of five types of surfaceExpand

Response of Sphagnum fuscum to Nitrogen Deposition: A Case Study of Ombrogenous Peatlands in Alberta, Canada
Abstract Peatlands cover about 30% of northeastern Alberta and are ecosystems that are sensitive to nitrogen deposition. In polluted areas of the UK, high atmospheric N deposition (as a component ofExpand

The bog landforms of continental western Canada in relation to climate and permafrost patterns
In continental western Canada, discontinuous permafrost is almost always restricted to ombrotrophic peatlands (bogs). Bogs occur mostly as islands or peninsulas in large, often complex fens or areExpand

Sphagnum-dominated Peatlands in North America Since the Last Glacial Maximum: Their Occurrence and Extent
Abstract Sphagnum-dominated peatlands occupy extensive tracts of land throughout the Boreal and Subarctic regions of North America, extending north onto the Low Arctic of the Canadian Shield andExpand

Climatic and physiographic controls on wetland type and distribution in Manitoba, Canada
Wetlands represent a substantial part of Manitoba’s terrestrial landscape, covering 233,340 km2 or 43% of the province; peatlands represent 90% of all wetlands. A wetland inventory for Manitoba isExpand

Net primary production and standing biomass in northern continental wetlands.
This report synthesizes published data on aboveground and below ground net primary production (NPP) and biomass for wetlands in continental western Canada and adjacent regions in continental easternExpand

Landscape variables influencing nutrients and phytoplankton communities in Boreal Plain lakes of northern Alberta: a comparison of wetland- and upland-dominated catchments
A review of headwater lakes in undisturbed watersheds on the Boreal Plain, with indirect gradient analyses of chemical data, indicated a clear separation between those in wetland-dominated watershedsExpand

Peatland Initiation During the Holocene in Continental Western Canada
Today, the southern limit of peatlands in continental western Canada is largely limited by thermal seasonal aridity, although physiographic parameters of substrate texture, topography, and salinityExpand
