Short summary
Carbon dioxide exchange (NEE) between the atmosphere and forested subtropical wetlands is quantified at three locations for 2 years. Each forested wetland showed net carbon uptake (retained in the soil and biomass or transported laterally via overland flow) from the atmosphere both monthly and annually. Changes in NEE were clearly a function of seasonality in solar insolation, air temperature and flooding, which suppressed heterotrophic soil respiration.
