A considerable amount of atmospheric GHG is produced and consumed through soil processes. Soils provide the largest terrestrial store for carbon (C) as well as the largest atmospheric CO 2 sources through autotrophic and heterotrophic organisms. Soils are also the greatest source (∼60%) of CH 4 and N 2 O through microbially mediated processes of methanogensis, nitrification and denitrification. Short term CO 2 , CH 4 and N 2 O gas fluxes from soil under a Eucalyptus plantation in central… 
Short-term effect of Eucalyptus plantations on soil microbial communities and soil-atmosphere methane and nitrous oxide exchange
Investigation of the impact of Eucalyptus plantations on the structure and function of a soil microbial community and how resulting alterations may be linked to GHG fluxes suggests that microbial community structure and functional gene abundance are not the main drivers of GHGs fluxes in this system.
Does tree species composition affect soil CO2 emission and soil organic carbon storage in plantations?
Key messageMixed tree plantations are potential silvicultural systems to increase soil carbon storage through altering litter and root inputs and soil physiochemical properties.AbstractAfforestation
Response of soil respiration to a severe drought in Chinese Eucalyptus plantations
Extreme droughts can adversely affect the dynamics of soil respiration in tree plantations. We used a severe drought in southwestern China as a case study to estimate the effects of drought on


Soil–atmosphere greenhouse gas exchange in a cool, temperate Eucalyptus delegatensis forest in south-eastern Australia
Abstract Forests are the largest C sink (vegetation and soil) in the terrestrial biosphere and may additionally provide an important soil methane (CH 4 ) sink, whilst producing little nitrous oxide
Methane and nitrous oxide fluxes of soils in pure and mixed stands of European beech and Norway spruce
Tree species can affect the sink and source strength of soils for atmospheric methane and nitrous oxide. Here we report soil methane (CH 4 ) and nitrous oxide (N 2 O) fluxes of adjacent pure and
Land-Use Change and Biogeochemical Controls of Methane Fluxes in Soils of Eastern Amazonia
ABSTRACT Tropical soils account for 10%–20% of the 15–35 Tg of atmospheric methane (CH4) consumed annually by soils, although tropical deforestation could be changing the soil sink. The objectives of
Soil‐atmosphere exchange of N2O, CH4, and CO2 and controlling environmental factors for tropical rain forest sites in western Kenya
[1] N 2 O, CH4 and CO 2 soil-atmosphere exchange and controlling environmental factors were studied for a 3-month period (dry-wet season transition) at the Kakamega Rain forest, Kenya, Africa, using
Carbon Sequestration in Arable Soils is Likely to Increase Nitrous Oxide Emissions, Offsetting Reductions in Climate Radiative Forcing
Strategies for mitigating the increasing concentration of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere include sequestering carbon (C) in soils and vegetation of terrestrial ecosystems. Carbon and nitrogen
Potential fluxes of N2O and CH4 from soils of three forest types in Eastern Canada
Abstract We conducted laboratory incubation experiments to elucidate the influence of forest type and topographic position on emission and/or consumption potentials of nitrous oxide (N 2 O) and
Soil‐atmospheric exchange of CO2, CH4, and N2O in three subtropical forest ecosystems in southern China
The magnitude, temporal, and spatial patterns of soil-atmospheric greenhouse gas (hereafter referred to as GHG) exchanges in forests near the Tropic of Cancer are still highly uncertain. To
Productivity overshadows temperature in determining soil and ecosystem respiration across European forests
Summary This paper presents CO2 flux data from 18 forest ecosystems, studied in the European Union funded EUROFLUX project. Overall, mean annual gross primary productivity (GPP, the total amount of
Sources of nitrous oxide emitted from European forest soils
Abstract. Forest ecosystems may provide strong sources of nitrous oxide (N2O), which is important for atmospheric chemical and radiative properties. Nonetheless, our understanding of controls on
CH4 oxidation and N2O emissions at varied soil water-filled pore spaces and headspace CH4 concentrations
Emission of N2O and CH4 oxidation rates were measured from soils of contrasting (30–75%) water-filled pore space (WFPS). Oxidation rates of 13C–CH4 were determined after application of 10 μl 13C–CH4
