Soil physicochemical data collected from site
Raw soil physicochemical data collected from each site. Site numbers refer to plots shown in Figure 1. 'Top' refers to soil of 0-7.5 cm depth. 'Middle' refers to soil of 7.5 - 15 cm depth. 'Bottom' refers to soil of 15-25 cm depth.
Fungal OTU Table
Relative abundances of fungal operational taxonomic units in samples based on DNA sequence length of fungal intergenic spacer regions (between fungal 18S rRNA and large ribosomal genes).
Bacterial OTU table
Relative abundances of bacterial operational taxonomic units in samples based on DNA sequence length of bacterial intergenic spacer regions (between bacterial 16S rRNA and 23s rRNA genes).
Two-way interaction plots for soil chemical variables showing the effects of treatment and depth
The interaction terms for (h) exchangeable acidity and (i) exchangeable aluminium were non-significant. Data are (dark blue) Permanent fallow; (light blue) Permanent pasture; (black) intensive tillage; (red) Moderate tillage; (green) No tillage.
