Noah Fierer, Mark A. Bradford, and Robert B. Jackson. 2007. Towards an ecological classification of soil bacteria. Ecology 88:1354–1364.

Appendix B. The relative abundances of the targeted bacterial groups in each soil sample. Soil codes are identical to those in Appendix A. Relative abundances are reported as the ratio between the number of 16s rDNA copies belonging to the target group and the total number of bacterial 16s rDNA copies as estimated by qPCR using a universal bacterial primer set (see Methods).
