The fen surface is often made of contrasted microenvironments, pools and strings, distributed in a geometric arrangement known as patterned fen. The fens are under the influence of varying water regimes causing the formation of pools, a process that we named aqualysis. The term refers to the physical degradation of the vegetation cover under the influence of water ponding. It is proposed here that pool inception is among… CONTINUE READING
