  • This data is NERC-funded but not held by the EIDC. The data is archived in European Nucleotide Archive under primary accession reference PRJEB33721. This dataset is the DNA sequences from Illumina MiSeq sequencing of the bacterial 16S and fungal ITS2 genes in climate manipulated soils from the Climoor field experiment. Soil samples were collected in 2003 and 2017 after 4 and 18 years of manipulation, respectively. The experimental field site consists of three untreated control plots, three plots where the plant canopy air is artificially warmed during night time hours, and three plots where rainfall is excluded from the plots at least during the plants' growing season (March to September). The Climoor field experiment intends to answer questions regarding the effects of warming and drought on ecosystem processes and has been running since 1999. The microbial community data aims to understand how changes in soil hydrological and chemical properties have influenced the soil microbial composition and the implications of this for biogeochemical cycling. The data were collected as part of NERC project NEC05670 CWI-STU Fiona Seaton as part of the NERC Soils Training And Research Studentships Centre for Doctoral Training (STARS)

  • This dataset includes measurements of microbial community composition by phospholipid fatty acid (PLFA) analysis, soil respiration (Carbon dioxide (CO2)), soil physico-chemical properties and 13C enrichment in CO2 samples and microbial Phospholipid Fatty Acids (PLFAs). Data were produced for an investigation of the effects of carbon (C) substrate addition on soil carbon cycling processes in ten tropical soils from the Peruvian Andes. Soils were amended with 13C labelled substrates (xylose, glycine, vanillin and hemicellulose) and incubated under controlled conditions for 7 days. Full details about this dataset can be found at
