Mire induction, ecosystem dynamics and lateral extension on raised bogs in the southern coastal area of Finland

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The origins, development and lateral extension of the mire ecosystems of five raised bogs in Southern Finland representing different mire complex types were studied by means of 71 basal peat radiocarbon dates, stratigraphic analyses and morphometric measurements and the results were compared with earlier (hydrodynamic) mire growth models. The purpose was to determine whether the development of a mire ecosystem is governed primarily by autogenous or allogenous processes and to assess what part is played in this by local environment factors
