This data set contains nematode community data for soil samples collected from two different land uses (farmland and forest) in the Peri urban area of Ningbo China. Samples were collected seasonally between April 2017 and January 2018.
Nematodes were removed from soil using density centrifugation, DNA extractions were then carried out on these extracted nematodes and directed TRFLP was used to obtain a measure of nematode community structure. Data are relative fluorescence for each TRFLP peak and have been Hellinger transformed.

Soil samples were collected across a watershed in the Peri urban area of Ningbo China between April 9-12, 2017; July 15-18, 2017; October 14-17, 2017; January 11-14 2018. In each watershed samples were collected from 2 different land uses (farmland and forest). At each site 250 g of soil was collected be randomly taking 5 soil cores across the site. All soil was stored at 4 °C prior to shipping to the UK. Shipping was carried out in compliance with the Scottish governments import licence and samples were stored in quarantine facilities at 8 °C as per The James Hutton Institute's biosecurity policy.
