Study Detail

TitleHigh Throughput Sequencing to Detect Differences in Aerobic Methanotrophic Bacterial Communities in Forest Soil, Peat and Sphagnum Moss in Cranesville Swamp Preserve, West Virginia, USA
Study TypeOther
Abstract Northern Sphagnum-dominated peatlands and northern temperate forest soils are a major source and sink of methane (CH4), a greenhouse gas. CH4 produced in these ecosystems is mainly oxidized by aerobic methanotrophic bacteria. While studies have been conducted separately on the diversity and ecology .. [more]
