Abstract

Arctic peatlands are mire ecosystems (i.e., peatlands where peat is currently being formed and accumulating – Joosten and Clarke 2002) distributed across the vast northern edges of the Eurasian and North American continents and the islands and coastal areas of the Arctic and far northern Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. The Arctic is a vast and diverse region, usually delimited at its southern boundary by the Arctic Circle, but differing definitions include not only tundra but also the northernmost part of the boreal zone and the forest-tundra (CAFF 2002, 2013).
