Whole Ecosystem Warming Stimulates Methane Production from Plant Metabolites in Peatlands
Department of Energy, Office of Science

While peatlands have historically stored massive amounts of soil carbon, warming is expected to enhance decomposition, leading to a positive climate change feedback effect. This study experimentally warmed peatlands in northern Minnesota and observed increased methane production relative to carbon dioxide release. This methane release process is likely to amplify global climate warming.
