The Ramsar Convention, signed in in Ramsar, Iran, is the only global treaty that focuses specifically on nations are signatories to the Ramsar Convention. A contracting party agrees to nominate at least one wetland in its territory to the List of Wetlands .   Recommendations developed for each of the five L‐SOHC sections northern white cedar through appropriate silvicultural techniques, including prescribed fire and browse protection. • Using the Ecological Classification System as an important tool to help maintain and enhance native plant communities.

      Recommendations for Pollinator Protection in Minnesota On 11 Dec, By fkrogst Governor's Committee on Pollinator Protection report with 39 recommendations . Perhaps the most significant environmental health experience at the conference was Cj) the invited EPA band. And that served to remind me of the book titled "And The Band Played On." And then another instructive episode occurred following adoption and distribution of the Year Objectives. The USPHS developed a draft of criteria for.

        Peatlands cover about 3% of the earth's land surface, holding between and Pg (Peta gram = 10 15 g, or equivalent to Gigatonne) of carbon (C) (Jackson et al., ; Köchy et al., ).This is equivalent to about 5–20% of the global soil C stock, 15–72% of atmospheric C, and 18–89% of global terrestrial C biomass.   By including peatlands in Chile's NDCs, the government is acknowledging the ecological importance of these wetlands and could be taking the first step toward much greater protection. Future actions should include removing peatlands from the mining code and integrating more of them into public or private conservation areas.

The Patterned Peatlands of Minnesota is a significant contribution to the current understanding of the ecology, hydrology, and socioeconomic history of Minnesota peatlands, and provides important perspectives for both development and preservation of peatlands wherever they may occur."--Jacket.

Peat (/ p iː t /), also known as turf (/ t ɜːr f /), is an accumulation of partially decayed vegetation or organic is unique to natural areas called peatlands, bogs, mires, moors, or muskegs. The peatland ecosystem is the most efficient carbon sink on the planet, because peatland plants capture CO 2 naturally released from the peat, maintaining an equilibrium.

Ecological Land Classification Hierarchy. The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources and the U.S. Forest Service have developed an Ecological Classification System (ECS) for ecological mapping and landscape classification in Minnesota following the National Hierarchical Framework of Ecological Units (ECOMAP ).

"A rich deposit of knowledge in the form of this book-a comprehensive treatment of the largest peatland area in the 48 contiguous United States. The editors of The Patterned Peatlands of Minnesota have organized its 19 chapters around five.

Many kinds of wetland ecosystems are found within the United States ().These range from small, discrete sites, such as Thoreau's Bog in Massachusetts or Four Holes Swamp in South Carolina, to large, spatially complex ones, such as the Great Dismal Swamp in Virginia and North Carolina or the peatlands of northern Minnesota.

Peatlands cover much of northern Minnesota, though only representing about three percent of Earth’s total land cover. Despite their relative rarity, they also contain 20 percent of all the carbon stored in the planet’s soils. Minnesota’s average temperature has risen to 3 degrees sincewith the sharpest increase during winter.

Part of the Ecological Studies book series (ECOLSTUD, volume ) Conclusions Most of the world’s peat-forming ecosystems occur in the boreal zone where they play important roles in carbon sequestration, erosional control, and landscape filtration.

A dramatic shift in the ecological function of northern peatlands from that of a net carbon sink to a net carbon source could potentially enhance climatic change due to the resultant increased atmospheric loading of radiatively important gases such as. Northern Minnesota has nearly seven million acres of peatlands.

That's more than any other state except Alaska. Peat is the decayed remains of plants that accumulate over centuries in wetlands. Most people think of peat as the black, mossy stuff home gardeners use to help their plants grow.

But researchers in Minnesota say peat is much more than that.

As in previous CDC guidelines, each recommendation is categorized on the basis of existing scientific data, theoretic rationale, applicability, and possible economic effect.

The recommendations are evidence-based wherever possible.peatlands are used for forestry and peat extraction. Large areas in the boreal zone, especially in the warmer parts, and in the temperate zone have been drained for arable and grassland agriculture and for peat mining.
