Abstract Microbes decompose fresh organic carbon inputs, such as plant litter, to CO 2 . Due to a high water-level (WL) in pristine peatlands the decomposition process is retarded and therefore, northern peatlands contain about 30% of the global soil carbon (C) pool. Global warming will decrease the WL of these soil C hotspots and therefore, the responses of the decomposition process of plant litter to shifts in WL regime is of interest. Two important decomposer communities, fungi and… CONTINUE READING
