Sphagnum production and decomposition in a restored cutover peatland

  title={Sphagnum production and decomposition in a restored cutover peatland},
  author={J Michael Waddington and Line Rochefort and Suzanne Campeau},
  journal={Wetlands Ecology and Management},
Natural peatlands represent a long-termsink of atmospheric carbon dioxide(CO2), however, drained and extractedpeatlands can represent a source ofatmospheric CO2. The restoration ofSphagnum mosses on abandoned milledpeatlands has the potential to sequesteratmospheric CO2 thereby returning thepeatland to a peat accumulating system.Micrometeorological and chambermeasurements of net ecosystem CO2exchange are proven methods forinvestigating production and decompositionprocesses in both natural… CONTINUE READING
