The International Peatland Society – the organisation dedicated to developing and promoting methods in the responsible management and wise use of peatlands and peat – is always on the look-out for nuggets of news on peatlands.
If you’ve just published a peaty paper, had an exciting fieldwork experience, written a report, or recently got stuck in a bog, the IPS would like to hear about it and send it out to the international peatland community via their monthly Peatland Snippets. Please send any relevant pieces (5 to 10 lines) to susann.warnecke (at) peatlands.org by the 20th of the month.
There’s space for longer articles too, in the IPS’s Peatlands International magazine, which is published several times per year. Susann would love to hear from you if you’re interested in submitting a piece. Both publications are free to IPS members, but submissions are invited from non-members also….though why not join? More information on membership rates and privileges can be found here.
And excitingly, this year is the Society’s 50th year anniversary – to be celebrated aboard a boat in the Rotterdam riviera! If you’d like to join the Jubilee Symposium from 11th to 13th September, tickets can be bought here.
