In this project, we assess the drivers of resilience and vulnerability within peatland vegetation dynamics. More specifically, we investigate changes in peatland vegetation structure in relation to spatio-temporal changes like climate, as well as developing novel indicators for assessing peatland vegetation resilience, which may ultimately aid in better monitoring and management of the restoration and preservation of peatland ecosystems all around the world.
