Abstract null null Soils harbor a diverse range of biodiversity, including microbes and soil animals, which are crucial in supporting ecosystem functions. Despite the well-known effects of biotic and abiotic factors on soil biodiversity, their relative importance on different soil organisms remains less known, reducing our ability to maintain multiple soil communities under environmental changes. We sampled 150 sites from humid to arid areas in eastern Australia to explore the direct and indirec...

Abstract null null Salinity and sodicity are major forms of land degradation in drylands worldwide, reducing soil function, and threatening pastoral livelihoods. Dryland soils are often dominated by biocrusts, surface aggregations of lichens, bryophytes, fungi and other minute organisms that stabilize surface soils. Biocrusts could have a role in maintaining hydrological functions in heavily salinized areas, but there have been few studies, and the mechanisms are poorly understood. We tested whe...

Abstract null null Encroachment of woody plants has a positive effect on hydrological functions (e.g., infiltration), but few studies have examined the effects of shrub patches on infiltration under different grazing scenarios. We examined differences in characteristics of plants and soils and saturated hydraulic conductivity between shrubs and their associated interspaces in two grazing regimes at three sites in a semi-arid grassland encroached by Caragana microphylla, a leguminous N-fixing shr...

Abstract Spatial patchiness in resources is a pervasive feature of drylands worldwide. This patchiness manifests itself as two distinct geomorphic zones that are characterised by the loss (runoff) or gain (runon) of resources such as water, seed and organic matter. Most studies have examined how vascular plants vary across these two distinct zones, but there are few studies of the non-vascular components of these patterned landscapes. We examined the distribution of soil crust lichens and bryoph...

Abstract null Analysing temporal patterns in plant communities is extremely important to quantify the extent and the consequences of ecological changes, especially considering the current biodiversity crisis. Long-term data collected through the regular sampling of permanent plots represent the most accurate resource to study ecological succession, analyse the stability of a community over time and understand the mechanisms driving vegetation change. We hereby present the LOng-Term Vegetation Sa...
Abstract null null Soil microbes, and the proteins they produce, are responsible for a myriad of soil processes which are integral to life on Earth, supporting soil fertility, nutrient fluxes, trace gas emissions, and plant production. However, how and why the composition of soil microbial proteins (the metaproteome) changes across wide gradients of vegetation, climatic and edaphic conditions remains largely undetermined. By applying high-resolution mass spectrometry to soil samples collected fr...

․Lichens play crucial roles in sustaining the functioning of terrestrial ecosystems; however, the diversity and ecological factors associated with lichenized soil fungi remain poorly understood. ․To address this knowledge gap, we used a global field survey including information on fungal sequences of topsoils from 235 terrestrial ecosystems. ․We identified 880 lichenized fungal phylotypes across nine biomes ranging from deserts to tropical forests. The diversity and proportion of lichenized soil...

Dataset describing sheeting properties made by termites (names, and feeding and building categories are given) sampled in 34 study sites, including M-Tropics observatories, from 19 countries. Data coming from 15 published studies are also given, for a total of 49 sites and 21 countries. The dataset include the locations (site names, countries, GPS coordinates, mean annual precipitations ‚MAP‘) and soil properties (electrical conductivity in µS cm-1, pH, C content in %, soil aggregate stability (...
