Summary
Abstract: It contains the raw sequences (.fasta files) quality scores (.qual files), flowgram data from the 454 instrument (.flow files), an index of each sequence read and the sample to which it belongs (.groups file) which can be read into the software package 'mothur' (www.mothur.org). This is provided for both the bacterial fraction (16S) and the fungal fraction (ITS).

Quality Statement of Authorship: SDS and IS designed, implemented and oversaw the multiyear study with SDS analyzing the data and writing the manuscript. AB & MVB analysed the sequencing data and contributed to writing the manuscript, JVD and MJ performed DNA extraction and ARISA analysis. AP collected the soil chemistry data and insured quality control of the entire data set. BF performed the sequencing on the Antarctic data set. PG coordinated the circumpolar arctic heath dataset and contributed to writing the manuscript, HC performed the biogeochemistry on that dataset. TW analysed the sequencing data and assisted in the meta-model analysis. EL helped develop and evaluate the SEM and contributed to writing the manuscript.
