Tropical peat surface oscillations are a function of peat condition at North Selangor peat swamp forest, Malaysia (2023)
Journal Article
Ledger, M. J., Evans, C. D., Large, D. J., Evers, S., Brown, C., Jovani-Sancho, A. J., …Sjögersten, S. (2023). Tropical peat surface oscillations are a function of peat condition at North Selangor peat swamp forest, Malaysia. Frontiers in Environmental Science, 11, Article 1182100. https://doi.org/10.3389/fenvs.2023.1182100

Tropical peatland condition across southeast Asia is deteriorating as a result of conversion to agriculture and urban zones. Conversion begins by lowering the water table, which leads to peat decomposition, subsidence and increased risk of large-scal...

Expert assessment of future vulnerability of the global peatland carbon sink (2020)
Journal Article
Loisel, J., Gallego-Sala, A. V., Amesbury, M. J., Magnan, G., Anshari, G., Beilman, D. W., …Wu, J. (2020). Expert assessment of future vulnerability of the global peatland carbon sink. Nature Climate Change, https://doi.org/10.1038/s41558-020-00944-0

© 2020, The Author(s), under exclusive licence to Springer Nature Limited. The carbon balance of peatlands is predicted to shift from a sink to a source this century. However, peatland ecosystems are still omitted from the main Earth system models th... Read More about Expert assessment of future vulnerability of the global peatland carbon sink.

Evaluation of vegetation communities, water table, and peat composition as drivers of greenhouse gas emissions in lowland tropical peatlands (2019)
Journal Article
Hoyos-Santillan, J., Lomax, B. H., Large, D., Turner, B. L., Lopez, O. R., Boom, A., …Sjögersten, S. (2019). Evaluation of vegetation communities, water table, and peat composition as drivers of greenhouse gas emissions in lowland tropical peatlands. Science of the Total Environment, 688, 1193-1204. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.scitotenv.2019.06.366

© 2019 Elsevier B.V. Tropical peatlands are globally important source of greenhouse gases to the atmosphere, but data on carbon fluxes from these ecosystems is limited due to the logistical challenges of measuring gas fluxes in these ecosystems. Prop... Read More about Evaluation of vegetation communities, water table, and peat composition as drivers of greenhouse gas emissions in lowland tropical peatlands.
