Our understanding of the patterns and drivers of soil microbial communities at the regional scale remains inadequate although both have been extensively studied in plant communities. In this study, we examined the patterns and drivers of soil microbial communities using data from 24 arid and semi-arid ecosystem sites, covering a broad range of community types, soils, and climates on the Mongolian Plateau. Our findings demonstrated that, at the regional scale, the total soil microbial biomass… CONTINUE READING
