A Corrigendum on
Shifts in metabolic hydrogen sinks in the methanogenesis-inhibited ruminal fermentation: a meta-analysis

by Ungerfeld, E. M. (2015). Front. Microbiol. 6:37. doi: 10.3389/fmicb.2015.00037

I wish to point out a mistake I made in the Discussion section of Ungerfeld, E. M. (2015) Shifts in metabolic hydrogen sinks in the methanogenesis-inhibited ruminal fermentation: a meta-analysis. Front. Microbiol. 6:37. doi: 10.3389/fmicb.2015.00037, which was kindly pointed out to me by Dr. Stéphane Duval. When citing the articles by Martínez-Fernández et al. (2014) and Romero-Perez et al. (2014), I mistakenly confused nitrooxycompounds with nitrocompounds. Both Martínez-Fernández et al. (2014) and Romero-Perez et al. (2014) evaluated nitrooxycompounds, not nitrocompounds, in their work. I wish to acknowledge this mistake and thank Dr. Stéphane Duval for contacting me on this.
