Sullivan et al. (2013) reported that there was a significantly positive relationship (P < 0.01, r = 0.58) between dissolved organic carbon (DOC) using salt extraction methods and potential methane oxidation rates in an arid region across a substrate age gradient. The authors observed that during the wet season rates of methane oxidation were higher, in opposition to trends in other ecosystems where increased soil moisture limits methane oxidation. Furthermore, DOC was more closely correlated… CONTINUE READING
