Soil fauna abundance under birch and willow vegetation in girdled and non-girdled plots, subarctic Sweden, 2019

Data comprise numbers of soil microarthorpods (mesofauna) extracted over 10 days from soils in northern, subarctic Sweden sampled on 29th July 2019. Soils were sampled from treeline mountain birch forest and stands of tundra willow that were wither ‘girdled’ (connection between leaves and roots cut by disrupting the phloem transport) or ‘control’ (no treatment), 2 years prior.
