Data sets

Determinism of biogeographical patterns and network interactions of soil fungal diversity across Francels (RMQS) du territoire métropolitain pour la 1ère campagne (2000-2009), avec coordonnées théoriques MetaOMIC-RMQS

Executive editor
This is one of the first surveys of soil fungal diversity across land uses at the national scale.
Short summary
The fungal kingdom has been diversifying for more than 800 million years by colonizing a large number of habitats on Earth. Based on a unique dataset (18S rDNA meta-barcoding), we described the spatial distribution of fungal diversity at the scale of France and the environmental drivers by tackling biogeographical patterns. We also explored the fungal network interactions across land uses and climate types.
