Wood ash contains all the essential plant nutrients except nitrogen, and thus supports tree growth especially on peatlands where mineral nutrients often are in short supply. Results indicated that higher pH and extra nutrients due to wood ash fertilization promoted the appearance of mycorrhizal and wood-decomposing fungi directly or via increased tree growth.
Responses of methanogenic and methanotrophic communities to warming in varying moisture regimes of two boreal fens
Peatlands are one of the major sources of the powerful greenhouse gas methane (CH4). Our aim was to detect responses of methanogenic archaeal and methane-oxidizing bacterial (MOB) communities that control the methane (CH4) cycle to climatic warming.
