Methanotrophic Bacteria of Acidic Sphagnum Peat Bogs

  title={Methanotrophic Bacteria of Acidic Sphagnum Peat Bogs},
  author={Svetlana N Dedysh},
Acidic Sphagnum peat bogs cover a considerable part of the territory of Russia and are an important natural source of biogenic methane, which is formed in their anaerobic layers. A considerable portion of this methane is consumed in the aerobic part of the bog profile by acidophilic methanotrophic bacteria, which comprise the methane filter of Sphagnum peat bogs and decrease CH4 emission to the atmosphere. For a long time, these bacteria escaped isolation, which became possible only after the… CONTINUE READING
