Appendix E. Results of NMDS ordinations of PLFA groups (Gram positive bacteria, Gram negative bacteria, actinomycetes, fungi).

Fig. E1. . Plot of the NMDS ordination for PLFA groups (Gram positive bacteria, Gram negative bacteria, actinomycetes, fungi) after one year versus after four years of decomposition. Number of points in the ordination was 737. The lowest stress level of the ordination was 0.053.


Fig. E2. Plot of the NMDS ordination for microbial groups in the different treatments. Number of points in the ordination was 737. The lowest stress level of the ordination was 0.053. CARB, carbon addition; IN, inorganic N addition; INC, inorganic N + carbon addition; LTN, long-term N addition; NON, non-N nutrient addition; ON, organic N addition; CONT, control.
