Abstract


Losses of carbon from peat lands occur in the form of CO2 emissions, methane, dissolved carbon or other particles, CO2 flux depending on the balance between carbon fixations by photosynthesis and it release through respiration in plants and peat mineralization, whole process being controlled by temperature and humidity.
CO2 emissions from the two histosol studied have different values; those being even higher as the thickness of the peat increases.

Keywords


: peat, CO2 emissions
