“Carbon cycling in mountain peatlands. Example from the Pyrenees.”
CNRS Researcher at EcoLab
Since the last glacial period, peatlands have accumulated large stocks of organic carbon. Despite representing only 3% of global continental surfaces, they store about 22% of the continental soil carbon stock. In the context of global change, peatland carbon sequestration capacity needs to be carefully monitored. This is especially true for mountain peatlands, facing extreme climatic conditions and enhanced climate change. In this talk, we will present investigations of carbon cycling is a mountain peatland from the French Pyrenees.
