Dörr, N; Glaser, B; Kolb, S: Methanotrophic Communities in Brazilian Ferralsols from Naturally Forested, Afforested and Agricultural Sites, Applied and Environmental Microbiology, 76(4), 1307-1310 (2010)
Conversion of forests to farmland permanently lowers atmospheric methane consumption due to unresolved reasons. Alphaproteobacterial methanotrophs were predominant in forested and gammaproteobacterial species in farmland soils of subtropical ferralsols in Brazil. The capability of atmospheric methane consumption was obliterated in farmland soils suggesting a shift from oligotrophic to copiotrophic species.
