Carbon dioxide (CO2) emission through accelerated peat decomposition is one
of the main environmental concerns in the conversion of peatlands into
plantations, which undergo drainage to increase palm growth rates and
production. Changes in aboveground biomass might also significantly alter the
CO2 exchange dynamics of the ecosystem. Despite the potential changes in
CO2 balance due to land conversion, so far no study has been conducted using
the eddy covariance technique about the CO2 balance of oil palm plantations
established on peat. We have monitored the eddy CO2 flux above an oil palm
plantation on peat in Sarawak, Malaysia since 2011.
