From steaming swamp to blanket bog: peatlands in action
14 August - 31 October
Come on a journey through Peru’s tropical peatlands…
From this August (2021), you’ll be able to explore Peru’s steaming swamps through this virtual gallery … or in person in the beautiful surroundings of the St Andrews Botanic Gardens.
The exhibition will be exploring three key themes:
- Ecosystems – highlighting the “ecosystem engineers” responsible for storing carbon below the ground, and other resident plants and animals.
- Fieldwork – describing experiences of data collection in and around the swamps.
- People and peatlands – describing experiences of data collection in and around the swamps.
The physical exhibition of photographs will run from 1st August until 31st October, 2021, at the St Andrews Botanic Gardens, in Fife, Scotland, and available to view online throughout and beyond.
