Development of bacterial communities in biological soil crusts along a revegetation chronosequence in the Tengger Desert, northwest China
<p><strong>Abstract.</strong> Knowledge of structure and function of microbial communities in different successional stages of biological soil crusts (BSCs) is still scarce for desert areas. In this study, Illumina MiSeq sequencing was used to assess the compositional changes of bacterial communities in different ages of BSCs in the revegetation of Shapotou in the Tengger Desert. The most dominant phyla of bacterial communities shifted with the changed types of BSCs in the successional stages,doi:10.5194/bg-14-3801-2017 fatcat:ovsig746ajaedgetp5afzifz3u
