Data from: Mammalian engineers drive soil microbial communities and ecosystem functions across a disturbance gradient

David J. Eldridge, Manuel Delgado-Baquerizo, Jason N. Woodhouse & Brett A. Nielan
The effects of mammalian ecosystem engineers on soil microbial communities and ecosystem functions in terrestrial ecosystems are poorly known. Disturbance from livestock has been widely reported to reduce soil function, but disturbance by animals that forage in the soil may partially offset these negative effects of livestock, directly and/or indirectly by shifting the composition and diversity of soil microbial communities. Understanding the role of disturbance from livestock and ecosystem engineers in driving soil microbes and...
