Natural wetlands are well known for their significant methane emissions. However, trace element emissions via biomethylation and subsequent volatilization from pristine wetlands are virtually unstudied, even though wetlands constitute large reservoirs for trace elements. Here we show that the average volatile fluxes of selenium (<0.12 μg m(-2) day(-1)), sulphur (<37 μg m(-2) day(-1)) and arsenic (<0.54 μg m(-2) day(-1)) from a pristine peatland are considerable and consistent over two summers… CONTINUE READING
