  • a Significances were tested within one soil at its home site in comparison to the transplanted soil (“away”). The analysis was performed on the basis of 5 time points (D0, D1, D2, D4, and D5). D3, which is not available for the Griessen site, was excluded from the analysis. “Between” significances indicate differences between “home” and “away” samples; “within” significances indicate effects of time. “Factor interactions” indicates the effects of time � transplantation interactions. Asterisks indicate significant differences at the 0.05 (*) or at the 0.01 (**) level.
