Short summary
Climate-induced drying and warming in continental bogs is expected to initially accelerate carbon losses via ecosystem respiration, but persistent drought and warming is expected to restore the peatland’s original carbon sink function as a result of the shifts in vegetation composition and productivity between the microforms and increased NPP of trees over time. Thus, the treed bogs are climate-sensitive but temporally adaptive ecosystems that have the potential to tolerate the changing climate.
