Rhizospheric exudation of Eriophorum vaginatum L. — Potential link to methanogenesis

  title={Rhizospheric exudation of Eriophorum vaginatum L. — Potential link to methanogenesis},
  author={Sanna Saarnio and Lutz Wittenmayer and Wolfgang Merbach},
  journal={Plant and Soil},
Root exudates are a direct link between primary production in higher plants and methanogenesis. The relationship has been widely studied on rice paddies, but less is known about its role in wetlands populated by naturally occurring species. This study provides information about the amount and composition of root exudates produced by a widespread mire plant, Eriophorum vaginatum L. For this purpose, E. vaginatum plants were grown in quartz sand in pots from April to October, and root exudates… CONTINUE READING
