The presence of live and dead emergent vegetation alters the microbial metabolism of communities within the water column of prairie pothole wetlands. To demonstrate the effects, dissolved CH4, dissolved O2, plant densities, and litter densities were measured in transects from emergent vegetation to open water zones. O2 concentrations were consistently lower and CH4 concentrations consistently higher in emergent zones. Plant surface cover most likely interferes with gas flux across the air-water… CONTINUE READING
