Aim: 
To assess intra- and interspecific variation in the soil fungal communities of five invasive legumes native to either south-east or south-west Australia
Type of Study: 
Observational study
Key Results: 
Soil fungal communities in non-native ranges are unlikely to have constrained or facilitated the invasion success of these legumes.
Treatments: 
Native vs introduced range
Response: 
NA
Models: 
Principal coordinates analysis (PCA), Permutational multivariate analysis of variance (PERMANOVA); Similarity percentage analysis (SIMPER)
Comments: 
NA
Locations: 
Australia
Response variable : 
Soil fungal communities
Replication: 
4 to 5
Ecosystem: 
Coastal sand dunes
