  • a Numbers and identity of the most abundant bacterial isolates obtained from Lovinkhoeve soil samples taken on September, January, May, and July. The bacterial division to which they belong is given. At the bottom the diversity (D and H) and evenness (E) indices based on these data are presented (see Materials and Methods).
