Synopsis

Zamglai nature reserve is one of the largest bog systems in Ukraine. Its name probably derives from the Old Kurdish word ‘zong’ meaning bog. We look at the bog phenomenon from different perspectives: as a locus of fears in the folklore of agricultural societies; as an exploited landscape in the industrial age; as a complex system of ties between species within the posthumanist paradigm; as a natural carbon sink reducing the greenhouse effect and countering climate change.
