These data are provided in support of the SPRUCE publication: Small Differences in Ombrotrophy Control Regional-Scale Variation in Methane Cycling among Sphagnum-Dominated Peatlands (Zalman et al., 2018). Reports on the mechanisms controlling C cycling rates and greenhouse gas emissions using a combination of biogeochemical and microbial approaches in three low pH, Sphagnum-dominated peatlands in northern Minnesota. In particular, biogeochemical parameters (CH4 and CO2 production potentials, porewater and gas CH4 and CO2 concentrations, and associated isotopic signatures), soil chemistry (organic acids and phenolics), and microbial community characteristics (quantification of methanogen and methanotroph abundance and activity) over a 1-year period in these three peatlands. Samples were collected from June of 2013 to June of 2014.
