Peatlands International 1/2009

Peatlands International 1/2009 in your Mailbox

Peatlands International, the global magazine of IPS,
was sent out to all members of our Society and a number of additional subscribers in early August.

Members in the Czech Republic, Estonia, Finland, Indonesia, Malaysia, Norway, Poland, Russia, Sweden, the United Kingdom and Ukraine and from countries without a National Committee receive their magazine directly from the IPS Secretariat in Finland. The National Committees of Canada, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Latvia, Lithuania, the Netherlands and USA organize the distribution in their own countries.
