Sphagnum distribution was studied on twenty-seven peatlands found along a transect extendingfrom the Queen Charlotte Islands, British Columbia, to central Alberta. Based on surface water chemistry, oceanic mires are either ombrotrophic bogs or poor fens, while in subcontinental areas, mires range from extreme-poor fens to moderate-rich fens. Species are grouped into fJive clusters; stands into ten. Species groups and stand dispersal are determined by climate and surface water chemistry… CONTINUE READING
