Shallow lakes may be a serious source for methane release to the atmosphere. (Photo: Ben Goldsmith).
The annual mean methane emission (divided into diffusion and ebullition) from different experimental treatments within the mesocosm. High and low nutrient levels and then three temperature levels – AMB is ambient temperature, A2 is +2-3ºC and A2+ is +4-5ºC. 
Abundant submerged plants may reduce the methane flux to the atmosphere. (Photo: Ben Goldsmith).
