Title: Microtropography and water table fluctuation in a sphagnum mire

Author: Verry, E.S.;

Date: 1984

Source: In: Proceedings of the 7th international peat congress; 1984 June 18-24; Dublin, Ireland. Dublin, Ireland: Irish National Peat Committee/The International Peat Society: Vol.2: 11-31

Publication Series: Other

Description: A detailed organic soil profile description, 22 years of continuous water table records, and a hummock-hollow level survey were examined at a small Minnesota mire (a bog with remnants of poor fen vegetation). Variation in the level survey suggests that hollows be used to minimize variation when detailed topographic information is needed and to match profile descriptions from distant locations. Water table and profile information suggests modification of acrotelm and catotelm definitions to recognize drought conditions and a field-identifiable boundary between the two layers.

Keywords: survey, ecology, conservation
