Fungi community function was investigated using FUNGuild to identify the functional groups (guilds) in the straw retention experiment. Fungi functional guild of was carried out using FUNGuild v1.0 [26], which taxonomically parsed fungal OTUs by examining the ecological guild of sequencing databases. Three trophic modes, for example, saprotrophs pathotrophs, and symbiotrophs are widely well-defined types in the fungal community ecology as they determine the specific fungi feeding habits. Twelve guilds related to these trophic modes were categorized. The Guilds that were “highly probable” and “probable” in the assignments were selected for not over-interpreting their data ecologically. OTUs of each sample that did not match taxa in the database were categorized as “unassigned”.
