FI-Sii, called Siikaneva, is located in Southern Finland and it is a fen belonging to an oligotrophic peatland massif of 1300 ha with few isolated ombrotrophic bogs. Vegetation is characterized by sedges (e.g. Carex limosa, C. rostrata, etc) and continuous Sphagnum moss cover (e.g. Sphagnum papillosum). In addition, dwarf shrubs of Andromeda polifolia and Betula nana are common.
