From: Fast response of fungal and prokaryotic communities to climate change manipulation in two contrasting tundra soils

Fig. 1

Fungal (a) and bacterial (b) diversity estimates and fungal biomass (ergosterol content) (c) in the dry (D) and the wet (W) tundra soil in control (C) and snow-manipulated (S) plots by season and as a seasonal average (column chart). Diversity is expressed as the number of the most abundant OTUs (operational taxonomic units), which represented 80% of all sequences. The data represent the means with standard errors (n = 6), for seasonal average (n = 24). Statistically significant effects (P < 0.05) of treatment between C and S at a specific site are indicated by asterisk
