Vegetation and carbon gas dynamics under a changed hydrological regime in central European peatlands
Background: Northern peatlands are known for having significant stocks of terrestrial soil carbon (C). However, little is known about how peatlands function under various land uses and what impactsExpand

Effects of long-term drainage on microbial community composition vary between peatland types
Abstract Peatlands represent an important reservoir of carbon, but their functioning can be threatened by water level drawdown caused by climate or land use change. Knowledge of how microbialExpand

Microbial community composition and in silico predicted metabolic potential reflect biogeochemical gradients between distinct peatland types.
It is not well understood how the ecological status and microbial community composition of spruce swamp forests (SSF) relate to those found in bogs and fens. To clarify this, we investigatedExpand

Methane Emissions and Methanogenic Archaea on Pristine, Drained and Restored Mountain Peatlands, Central Europe
Natural peatlands are known as an important source of methane (CH4). However, most peatlands in Central Europe were drained for forestry purposes in the past and some of them have been recentlyExpand

Effect of peat re-wetting on carbon and nutrient fluxes, greenhouse gas production and diversity of methanogenic archaeal community
Abstract Many peatlands were affected by drainage in the past, and restoration of their water regime aims to bring back their original functions. The purpose of our study was to simulate re-wettingExpand

Sensitivity of carbon gas fluxes to weather variability on pristine, drained and rewetted temperate bogs
Climate change is considered to alter the functioning of boreal peatland ecosystems, but the vulnerability of pristine, rewetted and drained peatlands to climate change in temperate regions isExpand

Cotton-Grass and Blueberry have Opposite Effect on Peat Characteristics and Nutrient Transformation in Peatland
Peatlands are large repositories of carbon (C). Sphagnum mosses play a key role in C sequestration, whereas the presence of vascular plants is generally thought to stimulate peat decomposition.Expand

Response of peat biogeochemistry and soil organic matter quality to rewetting in bogs and spruce swamp forests
Abstract Various peatland restoration strategies developed during the last two decades have aimed to stop degradation and bring back the original hydrology, biodiversity and other peatland functions.Expand

Soil organic matter quality and microbial activities in spruce swamp forests affected by drainage and water regime restoration
The effect of spruce swamp forest (SSF) drainage and water regime restoration on soil organic matter (SOM) quality and soil microbial heterotrophic activities was studied in pristine, drained andExpand

Quality of DOC produced during litter decomposition of peatland plant dominants
Abstract Litter decomposition is an important source of dissolved organic matter (DOC). In peatlands with hardly degradable soil DOC, the input of DOC from vascular plant litter can represent anExpand
