Peat cores from five Sphagnum-dominated peatlands in boreal continental Canada were analyzed for plant macro fossils. Results indicate that peatland development was influenced both by local autogenic and regional climatic factors. The general direction in peatland development from rich fen to poor fen to bog can primarily be ascribed to internal processes, especially peat accumulation. Quantitative paleoenvironmental reconstructions based on fossil moss assemblages indicate that all five… CONTINUE READING
