Peatlands International 2/2005


Peatlands International 2/2005 was published in October and sent to all IPS members, to stakeholders in peat and peatland issues as well as to Ramsar COP9 in Uganda to update the Contracting Parties of the Convention on the importance of peatlands and their Wise Use.

Peatlands International 2/2005 contains, among others, an introduction of IPS for those who are not involved in the “peat family” so far, a review of the importance of peatlands within the Ramsar Convention, some considerations on peatlands and climate change, reports on the ISHS-IPS Growing Media Symposium in Angers, the Annual Assembly of the German Peat Society, a Symposium on Peat Preparations in Medicine, Veterinary Medicine and Body Care as well as an overview on the Baltic Peat Producer’s Forum.
