Management of peatlands has large climate impacts

Drainage and management of pristine peatlands increase greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere.

A recent study published in PNAS, based on a new, wide data set collected from northern peatlands indicates that particularly those peatlands which have been taken into agricultural use have significant warming impact on climate. The effects of peatlands taken into forestry are, on the other hand, less well known and depend on the original peatland type.
