Global patterns of Sphagnum productivity
Abstract Data from 55 published studies of Sphagnum productivity were compiled covering 31 peat-moss species from Sphagnum-dominated wetlands. The relationships between productivity and geographicalExpand

Nitrogen fertilization reduces Sphagnum production in bog communities.
The effects of increased nitrogen influx on Sphagnum growth and on interspecific competition between Sphagnum species were studied in a 3-yr experiment in mires situated in two areas with differentExpand

Calcium and pH in north and central Swedish mire waters
Summary 1 We present data on calcium concentrations and pH in mire waters collected from different mire types in central and northern Sweden, compiled from published literature or calculated fromExpand

The Role of Sphagnum in Peatland Development and Persistence
Sphagnum mosses not only dominate large areas of the boreal peatlands, but they have also formed these habitats by their growth and production of decay-resistant litter. As they invade, they canExpand

Ecophysiological adjustment of two Sphagnum species in response to anthropogenic nitrogen deposition.
Here, it was investigated whether Sphagnum species have adjusted their nitrogen (N) uptake in response to the anthropogenic N deposition that has drastically altered N-limited ecosystems, includingExpand

Diversity and pH changes after 50 years on the boreal mire Skattlosbergs Stormosse, Central Sweden
The Skattlosbergs Stormosse min was reinvestigated in 1995 after 50 years of natural development since the previous investigation. The undrained mire is situated in an area with low anthropogenicExpand

Climatic modifiers of the response to nitrogen deposition in peat-forming Sphagnum mosses: a meta-analysis.
Peatlands in the northern hemisphere have accumulated more atmospheric carbon (C) during the Holocene than any other terrestrial ecosystem, making peatlands long-term C sinks of global importance.Expand

Local‐scale genetic structure in the peatmoss Sphagnum fuscum
Sphagnum (peatmoss) dominates huge areas of the Northern Hemisphere and acts as a significant carbon sink on a global scale, yet little is known about the genetic structure of Sphagnum populations.Expand

Growth, production and interspecific competition in Sphagnum: effects of temperature, nitrogen and sulphur treatments on a boreal mire
Summary • Growth and production of Sphagnum balticum and interspecific competition between S. balticum and either Sphagnum lindbergii or transplanted Sphagnum papillosum, were studied in a 4-yrExpand

Can small-scale experiments predict ecosystem responses? : An example from peatlands
Oligotrophic, Sphagnum-dominated peatlands have been regarded as long-term stable ecosystems that function as carbon sinks. As a result of environmental perturbations, particularly anthropogenic N ...
