Data from: Environmental degradation results in contrasting changes in the assembly processes of stream bacterial and fungal communities

Heikki Mykra, Mikko Tolkkinen & Jani Heino
Environmental degradation may have strong effects on community assembly processes. We examined the assembly of bacterial and fungal communities in anthropogenically altered and near-pristine streams. Using pyrosequencing of bacterial and fungal DNA from decomposed alder Alnus incana leaves, we specifically examined if environmental degradation deterministically decreases or increases the compositional turnover of bacterial and fungal communities. Our results showed that near-pristine streams and anthropogenically altered streams supported distinct fungal and bacterial communities. The mechanisms assembling...
