Hi Caroline, Interesting work! Have you all had a chance to look at whether the microbial community and/or microbial activity change with depth? Thanks, Grace Schwartz
Hi Grace, I'm working on that right now! If you're interested in microbial communities in peatlands and how they are change with regard to temperature and CO2, I would look at future publications from Christopher Schadt and Dwayne Elias at Oak Ridge National Lab. They are associated with the SPRUCE project. If you're interested specifically in mercury methylation and demethylating mirobes, I'm analyzing that data now and that will be released in a future publication. I'm still in the data processing phase so I haven't identified any trends yet.
