Greenhouse-gas effects of land-use change in Indonesian peatlands

Land-use changes alter the exchange of greenhouse gases, but the magnitudes of these effects remain uncertain. Estimates of net greenhouse-gas emissions associated with different uses of tropical peatland in Indonesia - including intact forest and Acacia tree plantations - could inform science-based practices for managing peatlands as nature-based mitigators of climate change.
