    In order to understand the relationships between understory bamnboo and soil properties, we compared microbial community structures in the soil of a Betula ermanii boreal forest with Saso kurilensis present and removed using high-throughput DNA sequencing. The presence of understory S. kurilensis strongly affected soil properties, including total carbon, total nitrogen, nitrate, and the C:N ratio as well as fungal and bacterial communities between plots.
