Climate envelopes of mire complex types in Fennoscandia

Description :
The aim of this work was to determine the extent to which the distribution of 4 main mire complex types (aapa mire, blanket bog, palsa mire, raised bog) can be modelled on the basis of climatological parameters. Additionally, the relative importance of different climatological variables in influencing the distribution of different mire complex types was scrutinized using the variation partitioning method. The variation in the distribution of mire complex types was decomposed into independent and joint effects of temperature, precipitation and spatial variables. They can be expected to be extremely sensitive to changes in future climatic conditions.
