Correction to: Biology and Fertility of Soils

Table 2 of the original version of this article unfortunately contains the superscript letters “#” and “$” within columns instead of the stastistical letters “a” and “b”. Superscript letters “#” and “$” within columns were changed to “a” and “b”, respectively. The correct Table 2 is as follows:
Table 2

Mean values of soil organic C (SOC), soil microbial biomass C (MBC) and N (MBN), ergosterol and the ratios SOC to total N (TN), ergosterol to fungal glucosamine (GlcN) and fungal C to bacterial C at different distances from the tree rows at two soil depths combined for three alley cropping systems. Clay content and pH were used as covariates. Mean values and probability values based on the GLIMMIX procedure

Means with no letter in common within a column indicate significant differences between distances of each soil depth (Tukey-Kramer, P < 0.05), n = 12; asterisks show significant differences between soil depths of each distance (probability values were Bonferroni-Holm corrected for multiple testing; *** P < 0.001, ** P < 0.01, * P < 0.05); SED: mean standard error of differences between distances of each soil depth; ns: not significant; if covariates were significant, covariate-adjusted means are presented; all two- and threefold interactions were insignificant. Ergosterol to fungal GlcN presented in μg mg−1.

#Back-transformed data from the logarithmic scale are presented as medians and data on the logarithmic scale in brackets
