Fig. S1. (A) Changes in bacterial diversity across the altitudinal gradient are shown in box plot; (B) Two-dimensional plots of non-metric multidimensional scaling analysis (NMDS) for the entire T-RFLP profiles according to altitude category.
Fig. S2. (A) Two-dimensional plots of non-metric multidimensional scaling analysis (NMDS) for the entire T-RFLP profiles according to soil depth category. (B) First canonical axis of the CCA analysis of bacteria T-RFLP profiles versus ammonium concentration for each sample. The axis explains 34% of the variability in the data for bacteria.
