Bacteria (16S) in Antarctic terrestrial soils of the Sor Rondane Mountains

Latest version published by SCAR - Microbial Antarctic Resource System on Nov 19, 2018 SCAR - Microbial Antarctic Resource System

Illumina sequencing data of bacterial communities in 52 soil samples from the western Sør Rondane Mountains (Dronning Maud Land, East Antarctica).The samples were taken along broad environmental gradients, including different types of bedrock, in an area covering nearly 1000 km2.

Title BELDIVA-AMBIO
Funding This research was funded by the Special Research Fund BOF of (grant ) and by the Belgian Science Policy Office (BelSPO) projects BELDIVA (EA/00/05), AMBIO (SD/BA/01A) and CCAMBIO (SD/BA/03A). A. Wilmotte is Research Associate of the FRS-FNRS. This study is a contribution to the State of the Antarctic Ecosystem (AntEco) research program of the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR).
Study Area Description The Sop Ronda Mountains (SRM) (22° E-28° E, 71°30′ S-72°40′ S) are a 220 km long, east-west oriented mountain range, situated about 200 km inland, with peaks reaching 3300 m a.s.l. The bedrock is mainly metamorphic (e.g. gneiss) with some plutonic (granite) outcrops.
