Today's storyteller is Dr Scott Davidson! Scott is a peat researcher and this podcast episode is all about peat! Peat is, very generally, partially decayed organic matter, and forms the base for ecosystems like peatlands, bogs, and more. Scott's work is focused on how disturbance and climate change will impact resilience of wetland systems, particularly peat lands! Peatlands are a type of wetland, and y'all know I love wetlands and so I had a lot of fun talking about all of this with Scott. We talk about why peatlands are important, how changes in peat can impact climate change (think massive greenhouse gas emissions), about his community science #PeatPicProject, and about the Peatlands ECR Action Team. Enjoy!
