We investigated whether the functioning and composition of microbial communities rapidly tracks short-term changes (within three years) in abiotic soil properties, land-use intensity, plant functional traits or plant biomass properties or if microbial changes are driven by the longer-term history of the site (legacy effect). In addition, we asked whether changes in microbial soil properties and functions were best explained by direct or indirect legacy or change effects of land-use intensity or in intermediate properties,...
