Disproportionate increase in freshwater methane emissions induced by experimental warming

Nature Climate Change, Published online: 29 June 2020; doi:10.1038/s41558-020-0824-y Methane emissions are determined by the balance of microbial methane production relative to consumption. Warming drives larger increases in methane production than consumption in experimental ponds, suggesting that natural ecosystems may represent a positive feedback under climate change.
