A third of the global terrestrial carbon is stored in peatlands, even if they cover only 3% of emerged lands. However, peatlands have been largely disturbed by humans, and now restoration methods are necessary to recover these unique ecosystems. My doctoral thesis studies the regeneration of the vegetation in disturbed peatlands, to improve and develop restoration techniques for these valuable ecosystems.
