Abstract :

Methanotrophs are microaerophilic organisms that play an important role in regulating the flow of methane into the atmosphere. Methane, which is an important greenhouse gas, is consumed by metanotrophs via methane oxidation in the soil. The process is affected by a wide variety of physical and chemical factors including soil diffusivity, water potential and levels of methance, copper, oxygen, ammonium, nitrite and copper in the soil.
