Trophic links between fermenters and methanogens in a moderately acidic fen soil.


Trophic links between fermentation and methanogenesis of soil derived from a methane-emitting, moderately acidic temperate fen (pH 4.5) were investigated. Initial CO(2):CH(4) production ratios in anoxic microcosms indicated that methanogenesis was concomitant to other terminal anaerobic processes. Methane production in anoxic microcosms at in situ pH was… (More)
