Peatbogs →

One of the ecological systems located in the area are peatbogs, a kind of wetland of glacial origin formed by a series of layers of vegetation that produce and accumulate organic matter at various stages of decomposition, forming peat. Peatbogs are fertile ground for the growth of bushes, mosses, and plants that are capable of retaining humidity and that have adapted to conditions where there is excess water, low nutrient levels, low oxygen levels, and acidic environments.
