Aerobic methane (CH4) emission from plant vegetative parts has been confirmed by many studies. However, the origin of aerobic CH4 from plants and its emission from reproductive parts have not been well documented. We determined the effects of developmental stages (early, mid, late) and incubation conditions (darkness, dim light, bright light) on CH4 emissions from stinkweed (Thlaspi arvense) capsules. We found that CH4 emissions from capsules varied with developmental stage and incubation light… Expand
Unravelling the effects of blue light on aerobic methane emissions from canola.
It is revealed that blue light drives aerobic methane emission from plants by releasing of methyl group from a number of amino acids, and that the methane production in plants may have several pathways. Expand
Individual and interactive effects of temperature and light intensity on canola growth, physiological characteristics and methane emissions.
Higher light intensity reduces Met and, in turn, CH4 and C2H4 emissions, but lower light intensity enhances CH4 formation through cleavage of methyl group of amino acids by reactive oxygen species, as previously suggested. Expand
Methane emissions from reproductive organs of pea plants exposed to multiple abiotic factors
Stress factors increased flower and pod CH 4 emissions, which had inverse relationships with dry mass of reproductive organs, suggesting the synergistic effects of environmental factors on plant-derived CH 4 . Expand
Light quality and quantity regulate aerobic methane emissions from plants.
It was found that low levels of light act as an environmental stress, facilitating CH4 release from both shade-intolerant sunflower and shade-tolerant chrysanthemum, providing evidence that both light quantity and quality regulate CH4 emissions. Expand
Differential effects of environmental stressors on physiological processes and methane emissions in pea (Pisum sativum) plants at various growth stages.
It is concluded that CH4 emission decreases with plant age, and it is affected by stress factors through changes in physiological activities of plants. Expand


Nonmicrobial aerobic methane emission from poplar shoot cultures under low-light conditions.
Molecular biological analysis proved the absence of any microbial contamination with known methanogenic microorganisms and ruled out the possibility that methane emission from poplar shoot cultures under aerobic low-light/dark and ambient temperature conditions could be of microbial origin. Expand
Terrestrial plant methane production and emission.
It is concluded that current attempts for upscaling aerobic CH(4) into a global budget is inadequate and it is too early to draw the line under the aerobic methane emission in plants. Expand
Ultraviolet radiation drives methane emissions from terrestrial plant pectins.
Results demonstrated production of CH(4), ethane and ethylene from pectins and from tobacco leaves following all treatments, and that methyl-ester groups of pectin are a source of CH (4), and that reactive oxygen species (ROS) arising from environmental stresses have a potential role in mechanisms ofCH(4) formation. Expand
Effects of temperature, ultraviolet radiation and pectin methyl esterase on aerobic methane release from plant material.
PME was found to substantially reduce the potential for aerobic CH(4) emissions upon demethylation of pectin, and rates of CH( 4) emission were found to depend exponentially on temperature and linearly on UV-B irradiance. Expand
Stressed crops emit more methane despite the mitigating effects of elevated carbon dioxide.
It is suggested that the despite the mitigating effects of rising atmospheric CO2, CH4 emission may be higher in the face of ongoing global climate change in warmer and drier environments. Expand
Effect of UV radiation and temperature on the emission of methane from plant biomass and structural components
Abstract. The recently reported finding that plant matter and living plants produce significant amounts of the important greenhouse gas methane under aerobic conditions has led to an intenseExpand
No evidence for substantial aerobic methane emission by terrestrial plants: a 13C-labelling approach.
It is shown, with the use of the stable isotope (13)C and a laser-based measuring technique, that there is no evidence for substantial aerobic methane emission by terrestrial plants, maximally 0.3% of the previously published values. Expand
Methoxyl groups of plant pectin as a precursor of atmospheric methane: evidence from deuterium labelling studies.
Results clearly demonstrate that ester methyl groups of pectin can serve as a precursor ofCH4, supporting the idea of a novel chemical route of CH4 formation in plants under oxic environmental conditions. Expand
Methane emissions from six crop species exposed to three components of global climate change: temperature, ultraviolet-B radiation and water stress.
It is concluded that CH(4) emissions may increase under climatic stress conditions and this extra source might contribute to the 'greenhouse effect'. Expand
Widespread non-microbial methane production by organic compounds and the impact of environmental stresses
Non-microbial methane (CH4) production is more pervasive in nature than previously thought, but it has received less attention than microbial CH4 production. Non-microbial CH4 is produced commonly byExpand
