This dataset includes data on soil properties, soil N pools, and soil N fluxes presented in the manuscript, "Refining the role of nitrogen mineralization in mycorrhizal nutrient syndromes". Please refer to that publication for details about methodologies used to generate these data and for the experimental design.

For this verison 2, we added specific gross nitrogen mineralization rates (ugN/gOM/d), microbial biomass carbon (ugC/gdw), microbial biomass nitrogen (ugN/gdw) and microbial biomass C:N ratios to the newest version of the data set. Additionally, we updated values for gross nitrogen mineralization, microbial NO3 assimilation and microbial NH4 assimilation to reflect slight changes in data processing. Those changes are reflected in "220829_All data_repository.csv". "220829_nitrogen_mineralization_readme.txt " is updated readme for the new file. The other 2 files begin with “220426_” are older version and same as in V1.
