II International Field Symposium “West Siberian peatlands and carbon Cycle: Past and Present”
24 August – 2 September, 2007
Experts from differenet fields – climatology, hydrology, soil science, geobotany, bryology, forestry etc. took part in the Symposium to study the diverse biosphere and resource functions of bogs. Peatlands of West Siberia are of high importance for the global carbon cycle and softening of the consiquences of global climate change. The scientists shared their experience during the work of different sessions of the Symposium and round tables. They also spent several days doing field work and visiting different kinds of bogs.
