Fig. S1. Graphical representation of abiotic parameters (A) total C, total N and C/N ratio and (B) ammonium and nitrate from spatial and temporal soil samples. Soil parameters were analysed as described by Héry and colleagues (2008). Univariate analysis of variance was tested at P < 0.05%. For anova, significant factors were then compared using Tukey post hoc test. All tests were conducted at α = 0.05
Table S1. Rainfall and temperature data for each calendar month from September 2006 to September 2007. These data were collected from the British Atmospheric Data Centre (NERC) – MIDAS Land Surface Observation Stations Data. These data were obtained from the weather station located at Wellesbourne, UK (∼10 miles from Ufton landfill site). Data for December 2006 were not available.
Table S2. Analysis of relationship between abiotic parameters and individual probe signal intensities. pmoA probe cell colours indicate the different groups of methanotrophs. Correlation between environmental parameters and array probe signals were analysed using Pearsons product moment correlation in the SPSS software package (SPSS, USA). Data that were not normally distributed were transformed (square root or Log). Positive and negative relationships are represented by positive and negative values. The values are arranged in a descending order and matched to their corresponding probes. The colours in the probe columns correspond to specific methanotroph groups. The probability for significance is P < 0.1%.
