Methane emission from a wetland plant: the role of CH4 oxidation in Eriophorum

  title={Methane emission from a wetland plant: the role of CH4 oxidation in Eriophorum},
  author={Peter Frenzel and Jutta Rudolph},
  journal={Plant and Soil},
The importance of plant-mediated CH4 transport was studied in a northern wetland. CH4 transport through Eriophorum, a dominant sedge, was found to be the major pathway for CH4 fluxes. Mean emission from Sphagnum lawns was low (34 μg CH4 m-2 h-1) and significantly higher from tussocks of Eriophorum vaginatum (974 μg CH4 m-2 h-1; U-test, p < 0.05). Mean flux from single tillers of Eriophorum angustifolium was 92 μg CH4 h-1. In contrast to other ecosystems, no CH4 oxidation was associated with… CONTINUE READING
