Tropical plants play an important role in the stratospheric chemistry by emitting methyl chloride and methyl bromide, which are carriers of ozone-depleting haloges to the stratosphere. However, the factors affecting the emissions of the methyl halides are not well known. Here, I will present some of our recent studies on methyl halide emissions in Southeast Asian tropical forests, and show that tropical plants not only produce methyl halides, but also consume them.
