  1. All values are average values ± the standard deviation. The number of T-RFs is the average for all 102 profiles. The Jaccard and Bray-Curtis similarities are the averages similarities of all 51 duplicate pairs. The T-RF profiles were analyzed with a PDT of 50. Descriptions of the treatments can be found in the Methods section. *denotes a significant difference from NT-heights. **denotes a significant difference from all other treatments.
