Data from: Soil microbes promote complementarity effects among co-existing trees through soil nitrogen partitioning

Shan Luo, Bernhard Schmid, Gerlinde B. De Deyn & Shixiao Yu
1. Plant resource partitioning is a mechanism promoting species coexistence and ecosystem functioning. Yet, we still have limited understanding of how soil microbes, especially plant symbiotic microbes, influence resource partitioning. We hypothesized that soil borne microbes, in particular mycorrhizal fungi, facilitate differential performance of tree species depending on different nitrogen sources and that this leads to a positive plant diversity–community productivity relationship. 2. We conducted two complementing glasshouse experiments. In a “monoculture experiment”, we supplied...
