Lineage In 2017 twenty five soil samples were cored to a depth of 5 cm from 5 predetermined plots on Albemarle farm, West Falkland. Additionally 18 samples were also collected from 6 sites at Saunders Island. GPS was used to mark the sampling location. A vegetation survey of each plot was carried out and vegetation abundance was recorded using Braun-Blanquet scale. Soil DNA will be extracted and fungal community data will be generated using targeted metagenomics. In 2018 twenty soil samples were cored to a depth of 5 cm from 4 predetermined plots on Albemarle farm. Roots were taken from each core. At Saunders Islands, 18 samples were collected from 2017 sampling sites and further 6 samples were collected from another site. Roots were not taken from these samples.
