Table S1. List of the most abundant species and plant functional types (PFTs) in the study site at the beginning of the removal experiment.

Table S2. Spore communities under different removal treatments, blocks, seasons, and season x treatment interaction as main effects.

Table S3. Mean AMF spore density (number / 100 g soil dry weight), total density, diversity index, and evenness index among treatments after 36 months of initial removals.

Table S4. Mean AMF spore density (number / 100 g soil dry weight), total density, diversity index, and evenness index among treatments after 39 months of initial removals.

Table S5. Results of a repeated measurement analysis of AMF functional groups through a univariate model for divided plots in randomized complete block with effect of block, treatment, season, and season x treatment interaction (data were rank transformed).

Table S6. Eigenvector scores of AMF morphotaxa in two main PCA.

Figure S1. Gigasporaceae spore abundance under different plant functional type removal treatments along seasons (see methods). Error bars indicate + 1 SE (n= 6 blocks). Bars with the same letters are not significantly different (Test LSD Fisher test, P < 0.05).

Figure S2. Box plots illustrate the distribution of treatments along PCA axis 1. Score means distribution were not significantly different between treatments (F = 1.9717, p = 0.1180).
