Spring is coming!

Following the series of our laboratory experiments, we prepared tree seedlings for springtime in one cold day of November. We selected the plant chambers of the University of Helsinki, located in Viikki campus, for this study.


Four different 3-years-old species including “Scot pine”, “Norwegian Spruces”,” European Larch” and “downy Birches” will be used to monitor the drivers of leaf-level CH4 emissions. In addition, the Methane flux of shoots and root-soil compartments will be measured by using the different levels of UV-radiation treatments over the seedlings. Also applying different Carbon isotope treatment over the divided groups of the seedling is part of next step of this experiment, after CH4 flux measurements


Now, our seedlings and we are waiting for spring and an exciting break through.

Stay tuned for more….
