Methanogenesis in wetlands is dependent on intermediary substrates derived from the degradation of biopolymers. Formate is one such substrate and is stimulatory to methanogenesis and acetogenesis in anoxic microcosms of soil from the fen Schlöppnerbrunnen. Formate dissimilation also yields CO(2) as a potential secondary substrate. The objective of this study was to resolve potential differences between anaerobic formate- and CO(2)-utilizing prokaryotes of this fen by stable isotope probing… CONTINUE READING
