VII INTERNATIONAL FIELD SYMPOSIUM
2024 AUGUST, 15 — 27
We invite you to take part in WSPCC 2024 - the Seventh International Field Symposium WEST SIBERIAN PEATLANDS AND THE CARBON CYCLE: PAST AND PRESENT.
The symposium aims to promote a broad exchange of knowledge in the field of studying biodiversity, processes of bog formation and conservation of the biosphere functions of peat bogs and wetland forests, integrated environmental monitoring of bog ecosystems, the role of bogs in the global carbon cycle, as well as assessing the anthropogenic impact on the peat bogs functioning and issues of introducing modern technologies for low-carbon environmental management in the context of climate change.
Plenary sessions, breakout sessions and field excursions will be devoted to discussing the main results of studying biodiversity and the functioning of bog ecosystems, modeling the processes of carbon exchange and peat accumulation, protection and reclamation of bogs, and the implementation of climate projects.
1. The role of mire ecosystems in the global carbon cycle. Ecological modeling.
2. Biodiversity and ecology of mire.
3. Biogeochemical cycles of natural and anthropogenically disturbed mire ecosystems. Biogeochemistry of peats and mire waters.
4. Paleoecology and history of the development of mire ecosystems.
5. Impact of modern climatic changes on forested and mire ecosystems.
6. Mire as specially protected objects and their role in the sustainable development of regions.
