Carbon stocks and accumulation rates in humus and peat horizons of the contiguous soil series of forest and bog ecosystems have been studied in the Central Forest State Biosphere Reserve, Tver Region. Upland soil types (soddy podzolic, brown, and white podzolic) have been compared to paludified (peat-enriched gley podzolic and peaty gley) and bog soils differing in trophic status, including those of upland, transitional, and lowland bogs. The results show that carbon stocks in mineral soils are… 

Transformation of peat horizon in swampy southern taiga forests under the impact of surface drainage

The results of stationary studies of swampy southern taiga forests in Yaroslavl oblast are presented. Estimates of changes in the thickness of peat horizon in peat podzolic gley soils (Folic

Partitioning of ecosystem respiration in a paludified shallow-peat spruce forest in the southern taiga of European Russia

Soil, tree stems, and ecosystem carbon dioxide fluxes were measured by chambers and eddy covariance methods in a paludified shallow-peat spruce forest in the southern taiga of European Russia (Tver

Forest history, peatland development and mid- to late Holocene environmental change in the southern taiga forest of central European Russia

Abstract Understanding the long-term ecological dynamics of boreal forests is essential for assessment of the possible responses and feedbacks of forest ecosystems to climate change. New data on past

Influence of Hydrological Conditions on the Formation of Forested Peatlands and Shallow-Peat Forests at Watersheds in the Central Forest Nature Reserve

The spatial variability of the water regime determined by peat-deposit structure and surface slope is characteristic of watershed forested peatlands and shallow-peat forests that belong to similar

Increasing wildfires threaten historic carbon sink of boreal forest soils

Soil radiocarbon dating reveals that combusted ‘legacy carbon’—soil carbon that escaped burning during previous fires—could shift the carbon balance of boreal ecosystems, resulting in a positive climate feedback.

Losses of Soil Carbon upon a Fire on a Drained Forested Raised Bog

We studied the consequences of a fire that affected 29 ha of a drained forested raised bog in Tver oblast, Central European Russia. The drainage network consisted of open 1-m-deep ditches with 60 to

The Last Hundred Years of Land Use History in the Southern Part of Valdai Hills (European Russia): Reconstruction by Pollen and Historical Data

Abstract The last one hundred years of land use history in the southern part of Valdai Hills (European Russia) were reconstructed on the base of high resolution pollen data from the peat monolith

Radiative Entropy Production along the Paludification Gradient in the Southern Taiga

This work calculated the σ in the radiation balance for a well-drained spruce forest, a paludified spruce Forest, and a bog in the southern taiga of the European part of Russia using long-term meteorological data to demonstrate high self-regulation of the taiga forest ecosystems.

Growing season variability of net ecosystem CO2 exchange and evapotranspiration of a sphagnum mire in the broad-leaved forest zone of European Russia

The spatial and temporal variability of net ecosystem exchange (NEE) of CO2 and evapotranspiration (ET) of a karst-hole sphagnum peat mire situated at the boundary between broad-leaved and

Effects of pyrogenic factor on wetlands of Petrovskaya Pad' (Jewish Autonomous Region, Russia)

In recent decades, a severe wildfire situation threatening the territory along the periphery of the Bastak State Nature Reserve (Russia) has developed in the Petrovskaya Pad’. In this paper, we



Eurasian Mires of the Southern Taiga Belt: Modern Features and Response to Holocene Palaeoclimate

Terrestrial ecosystems play an important role in the global carbon cycle; and peatlands, wetlands with a high capacity for carbon storage, are an important component of the carbon pool of the

Co2 Gas Proportional Counting in Radiocarbon Dating — Review and Perspective

Gas counting is a mature and powerful technique central to radiocarbon dating. The method was taken from the detection techniques used in nuclear physics and adapted to the special requirements of

The Development of Morality

Moral development is examined from the perspective of the major theoretical approaches. The chapter begins with discussion of historical roots of the psychology of morality. The issues accorded
