Community diversity between the three snow layers and soil samples. The measures of α-diversity for each sample are given. a Number of observed bacterial 16S rRNA gene OTUs. b Number of observed fungal ITS1 OTUs. PCoA of the between samples distances, for c bacterial and d fungal samples, were measured using unweighted UniFrac distance. Symbol shapes indicate the two Dolomite mountain collection sides. Colors of snow layers are coded according to Fig. 1d and soil samples are given in orange color
