Short summary
Tropical montane forests represent a significant portion of Andean land cover, however, soil-atmosphere methane exchange in these ecosystems is under studied. Here we report on soil methane cycling in montane forests of the southern Peruvian Andes. These soils acted as a net sink for atmospheric methane and variation in uptake across the studied forests was best explained by nitrate inhibition of oxidation and/or limitations on the inward diffusion of methane from the atmosphere into the soil.
