Record #88668:

The development of streamlined bog islands in the continental interior of North America / Paul H. Glaser.

Title: The development of streamlined bog islands in the continental interior of North America / Paul H. Glaser.
Author(s): Glaser, Paul H.
Date: 1987.
In: Arctic and Alpine Research. (1987.), Vol. 19(4) (1987)
Abstract: Boreal peatlands have developed vegetation landforms that resemble the shape of geologic landforms such as islands and river channels. Genesis and development of these vegetation landforms is inferred from spatial transitions and from quantitative shape analysis. Bog islands seem to be equilibrium forms representing stable adjustment to the alkalinity and volume of runoff.
Notes:
