Description We tested long-term and contemporary environmental conditions as determinants of the species composition of four groups of bog organisms. Although only long-term averages of some environmental variables were sufficient to explain species compositions, major patterns were revealed by spot samples. Contrary to vegetation, short-lived and well-dispersed microorganisms already reflected the new pH/calcium gradient.
