Effects of land use intensity on the full greenhouse gas balance in an Atlantic peat bog
Wetlands can either be net sinks or net sources of greenhouse gases (GHGs), depending on the mean annual water level and other factors like average annual tempera- ture, vegetation development, andExpand

Dissolved organic matter properties and their relationship to carbon dioxide efflux from restored peat bogs
Abstract The effects of peat bog harvesting and restoration on dissolved organic matter (DOM) are poorly known although DOM represents the most mobile part of organic matter in peat. The aims of ourExpand

Carbon dioxide and methane production potentials of peats from natural, harvested and restored sites, eastern Québec, Canada
Drainage, vegetation removal and harvesting, and vegetation restoration have a profound effect on carbon cycling in peatlands. Through laboratory incubations of 114 peat samples collected from theExpand

Methane and nitrous oxide exchange in differently fertilised grassland in southern Germany
We examined the effect of fertilisation (200 kg cattle slurry-N ha−1 year−1) on the exchange of N2O and CH4 in the soil–plant system of meadow agroecosystems in southern Germany. From 1996 to 1998,Expand

The effect of biomass harvesting on greenhouse gas emissions from a rewetted temperate fen
The growing demand for bioenergy increases pressure on peatlands. The novel strategy of wet peatlands agriculture (paludiculture) may permit the production of bioenergy from biomass while avoidingExpand

Soil development along an altitudinal transect in a Bolivian tropical montane rainforest: Podzolization vs. hydromorphy
Knowledge about soil formation in tropical montane rainforests is scarce and patchy. We examined the altitudinal change of soils in a Bolivian tropical montane rainforest, aiming to illuminate theExpand

Short-term effects of an exceptionally hot and dry summer on decomposition of surface peat in a restored temperate bog
Abstract The restoration of drained peat bogs in Northwest (NW) Europe is an important task of soil protection, but needs to cope with warmer and drier summers. Our examination took place in theExpand

A carbon storage perspective on alluvial sediment storage in the Rhine catchment
Abstract Floodplains are important sinks in terms of the sediment and carbon flux in fluvial systems. Despite the large amount of detailed geomorphological studies, which include measurements onExpand

Biogeochemical indicators of peatland degradation - a case study of a temperate bog in northern Germany
Abstract. Organic soils in peatlands store a great proportion of the global soil carbon pool and can lose carbon via the atmosphere due to degradation. In Germany, most of the greenhouse gas (GHG)Expand
