The study was conducted over three years in arid and semi-arid regions of Australia to assess the belowground effects of altered rainfall regimes. we found that The microbial communities showed significant variations between the semi-arid and arid sites and over the years. The findings provide a better understanding of microbial responses to predicted increases in rainfall variability and the impact on the functioning of semi-arid and arid ecosystems. The provided metadata contains site details and their environmental and nutrient values which are used for the study.
