The recognition of these ecosystems studied in Argentinian territory is open to a similar interpretation, as Roig (1998) collected only two alliances for his syntaxonomical checklist for Patagonia: one Sphagnion magellanici for Sphagnum bog
communities; and the other Donation fascicularis for cushion bog communities, although both syntaxonomical names were ultimately invalid, as we will explain below.
Limits of Sphagnum bog
growth in the Southern Hemisphere.
Swinehart conducted the first systematic, quantitative study of Tamarack Bog, as well as Hickory Bog (a tiny Sphagnum bog
nestled within the crest of an esker).
This protective blanket of peat, which covers whole landscapes, has been largely generated by one of our smallest plants, sphagnum bog
Sphagnum moss is the living moss that grows on top of a sphagnum bog
The low nutrient status of Australian groundwater enables the development of Sphagnum bog
vegetation and the raised watertable typical of an ombrotrophic system.
61) Fully in accord with the restorationist enthusiasms noted by Michael Hough, it recommended weeding competing non-bog species from remaining patches of sphagnum bog
, raising the summer water table close to surface levels, and removing large hemlock trees.
The transition from brown moss-dominated fen to Sphagnum bog
occurred at approximately 1140 radiocarbon ([C.
Camosun Bog Trail takes you on a short walk to the heart of a 2,000-year-old sphagnum bog
