A Compilation of Global Soil Microbial Biomass Carbon, Nitrogen, and Phosphorus Data
Entry ID: GLOBAL_MICROBIAL_BIOMASS_C_N_P_1264_1


Summary
Abstract: This data set provides the concentrations of soil microbial biomass carbon (C), nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P), soil organic carbon, total nitrogen, and total phosphorus at biome and global scales. The data were compiled from a comprehensive survey of publications from the late 1970s to 2012 and include 3,422 data points from 315 papers. These data are from soil samples collected primarily at ... View entire text
