Principal components analysis was performed on plant trait and soil abiotic properties data; the community composition of each fungal functional group (putative fungal pathogens, AM fungi, and saprotrophs) was characterized using principal coordinate analysis (using Bray-Curtis distances and Hellinger transformation of read abundance data). The first two principal coordinates for each fungal group and the first two principal component axes of plant traits and soil abiotic properties were used as predictors of plant-soil feedback in the analysis described below. The importance of plant species identity and the first principal component of abiotic soil properties in explaining variation in plant traits and soil microbial properties was analyzed using variance partitioning for univariate traits (comparison of linear fixed-effects models) and redundancy analysis for multivariate data [package vegan, function dbrda in R 3.4.0 (48)].
