The dependence of methane transport in rice plants on the root zone temperature

  title={The dependence of methane transport in rice plants on the root zone temperature},
  author={Tatsuo Hosono and Isamu Nouchi},
  journal={Plant and Soil},
Large diurnal and seasonal variations in methane flux from rice paddies have been found in many studies. Although these variations are considered to result from changes in methane formation rates in the soil and the transport capacity (e.g. biomass, physiological activities, and so on) of rice plants, the real reasons for such variations are as yet unclear. This study was conducted to clarify the effects of temperature on the rate of methane transport from the root zone to the atmosphere using… CONTINUE READING
