Title Microbial PFLA data
Downloaded 42 times
Description In early June 2011, 48 experimental plots (50 × 50 cm) were established in lawn (n = 24) and hummock microhabitats (n = 24) in a Sphagnum-dominated ombrotrophic peatland in the Store Mosse National Park, Sweden (57°17’54 N, 14°00’39 E). In both microhabitats, the vascular plant functional type (PFT) composition was manipulated by removing (clipping) ericoids (–Eric), graminoids (–Gram), or both. A set of control plots remained intact. One year later, peat samples (c. 20 g. f. wt) were collected from all plots (n =48) at the aerobic/anaerobic boundary (10 – 30 cm below the peat surface, microhabitat dependent). Microbial community composition was analysed on these samples using phospholipid fatty acid analysis.

These samples were used to measure potential methane production, potential methane oxidation, organic matter chemistry, pmoA gene copies, and environmental data.

Title Ecosystem respiration
Downloaded 32 times
Description To asses the effect of vascular plant removal in aforementioned experiment, one year after the start of the experiment, we measured carbon dioxide respiration rates on 10 cm diameter collars using an automated soil CO2 flux system (LI-8100, LI-COR Biosciences, USA). We compare the fluxes from the vascular plant removal plots with respiration rates from comparable areas in the control plots with little or no vascular plant cover, and assessed the relationship with the amount of removed biomass.
