Methane oxidation in the rhizosphere of wetland plants may significantly attenuate methane losses from wetland soils to the atmosphere. Our objective was to measure the extent of methane production and oxidation in the rhizosphere of a common wetland plant (Sagittaria lancifolia L. Per.). Methyl fluoride (CH{sub 3}F), a water-soluble gas and a specific inhibitor of methane oxidation, was used in conjunction with a closed chamber technique to determine rhizospheric methane oxidation in a… CONTINUE READING
