Wetland-adapted trees are known to transport soil-produced methane (CH4 ), an important greenhouse gas to the atmosphere, yet seasonal variations and controls on the magnitude of tree-mediated CH4 emissions remain unknown for mature forests. We examined the spatial and temporal variability in stem CH4 emissions in situ and their controls in two wetland-adapted tree species (Alnus glutinosa and Betula pubescens) located in a temperate forested wetland. Soil and herbaceous plant-mediated CH4… CONTINUE READING
