New beetle publication

Cockchafers belong to the family Scarabaeidae which includes more than 20000 other beetle species. Thus it is not unlikely that there are other beetles out there which also emit methane. We have just published a paper about the effect of the rose chafer (Cetonia aurata) on soil methane fluxes. Just follow the link below.
