Alpha diversity indices of AM fungal communities in root and soil samples. For alpha diversity, number of OTUs observed (Sobs), Shannon, Simpson, Chao1, ACE and Faith’s PD indices were calculated using random subsamples of 15,869 18S rRNA gene sequences per sample. OTUs were delineated at 97% sequence similarity. The box plot shows median (black line), first quartile–third quartile percentiles (box range) and 1.5× the interquartile range (whiskers). There were three independent replicates of each treatment
