Title of the talkGreenhouse gas fluxes in wetland soils, tree stems and canopies

Time: Thursday, 11 November 2021 at 14.15

Place: Tartu, Lai 40-218 (mandatory to present a covid certificate or to wear a mask), or virtual seminar in Zoom

Summary: Drained wetlands are significant sources of CO2 and N2O (commonly known as laughing gas) greenhouse gases (GHG) while natural wetlands emit methane. Little is known about the role of tree stems and canopies in transformation of the GHG fluxes. Here we present our research in global wetland soils, including a riparian deciduous forest in Estonia to a tropical palm swamp in the Peruvian Amazon.
