A database and synthesis of northern peatland soil properties and Holocene carbon and nitrogen accumulation
Here, we present results from the most comprehensive compilation of Holocene peat soil properties with associated carbon and nitrogen accumulation rates for northern peatlands. Our database consistsExpand

Natural revegetation of two block-cut mined peatlands in eastern Canada
Limited areas of post-mined peatlands are recolonized by Sphagnum-dominated communities. This study aims to recognize the spontaneous Sphagnum re-establishment process and to verify if SphagnumExpand

A testate amoeba-based transfer function for paleohydrological reconstruction from boreal and subarctic peatlands in northeastern Canada
Testate amoebae are common proxy for water table depth in peatlands and are commonly used to reconstruct past hydroclimatic conditions. In northeastern America, previous transfer function developmentExpand

Variation in CO2 exchange over three summers at microform scale in a boreal bog, Eastmain region, Québec, Canada
[1] We examine variability in carbon dioxide (CO2) exchange as a function of meteorological conditions using static chambers across a peatland microtopographic gradient (high hummock, low hummock,Expand

Impact of Climate Change on Forest Fire Severity and Consequences for Carbon Stocks in Boreal Forest Stands of Quebec, Canada: a Synthesis
The global boreal forests comprise large stocks of organic carbon that vary with climate and fire regimes. Global warming is likely to influence several aspects of fire and cause shifts in carbonExpand

Holocene palaeoecological reconstruction of three boreal peatlands in the La Grande Rivière region, Québec, Canada
Pollen and macrofossil analyses from central peat cores along with 23 radiocarbon dates were used in palaeoecological reconstructions for three peatlands (LG1, LG2 and LG3) within the lower La GrandeExpand

Modern Sphagnum d 13 C signatures follow a surface moisture gradient in two boreal peat bogs
Carbon isotopic composition of Sphagnum macrofossils can potentially be used as a palaeohydrological tool for peat-based climatic studies since a relationship between Sphagnum d 13 C values andExpand

Evaluating the use of testate amoebae for palaeohydrological reconstruction in permafrost peatlands
The melting of high-latitude permafrost peatlands is a major concern due to a potential positive feedback on global climate change. We examine the ecology of testate amoebae in permafrost peatlands,Expand
