Study Detail

TitleMethanotrophs, methanogens, and microbial community structure in livestock slurry surface crusts
Study TypeOther
Abstract Livestock manure stores are significant sources of atmospheric methane (CH4). However, crusts forming at the surface of liquid manure (slurry) during storage have been shown to harbor methane-oxidizing bacteria (MOB), suggesting there is a potential for mitigation of CH4 emissions from the slurry.
