Item Description: Active methane production in oxygenated lake waters challenges the long-standing paradigm that microbial methane production occurs only in anoxic conditions, and forces us to rethink the ecology and environmental dynamics of this powerful greenhouse gas. We discuss evidence of oxic methane production in aquatic systems, the biochemical mechanisms involved, and its potential contribution to lake-to-air methane flux.
