Soil Organic Matter Associated with Harvester Ant Nests on the Jornada Basin LTER, 1987

Rodolfo Di Marco
The effects of harvester ant (Pogonomyrmex rugosus) nests on soil characteristics were measured at three locations characterized by different soils and dominant vegetation on a desert watershed. This dataset contains percent organic matter for soil samples collected from five ant nests for each of the three sites. Organic matter was determined by total combustion in an electric muffle furnace at 600 C for 8 hours using the same soil samples as used for water content...
