Table 4 Average and standard error of the mean (± SE) of daily growing season net ecosystem exchange (NEE) and methane (CH4) emissions for broad peatland regions of temperate (Atlantic Maritime and Mixedwood Plains), boreal (Boreal Shield and Boreal Plains), and subarctic (Hudson Plains, Taiga Shield and Taiga Plains)

From: Spatially-integrated estimates of net ecosystem exchange and methane fluxes from Canadian peatlands
