From steaming swamp to blanket bog: peatlands in action Exhibition on the peatlands of Peru

Come on a tour of Peru's steaming swamps through a selection of photographs taken by researchers from the University of St Andrews, and colleagues, during fieldwork in Peru's Amazonian peatlands.

The exhibition explores three key themes: ecosystems -- highlighting the "ecosystem engineers" responsible for carbon storage; fieldwork -- describing experiences of data collection in the swamps; and people -- illuminating the people and activities associated with the peatlands.

The photographs are being exhibited in the beautiful setting of the St Andrews Botanic Garden, and are suitable for all ages of explorer.

If you can't make it along in person, you can also view the images in our virtual gallery, which has more information on the exhibition, along with some educational materials for children.
