The AWCD values showed differences in microbial metabolic activity between the two crop systems (Fig.
The number of carbon utilized by the microbial communities varied from 5 to 31 at each site (Figure 4), and the relative abundance based on AWCD for each substrate was also different.
Application of bio-organic fertilizer made AWCD significantly higher than no fertilization (CK).
The Biolog EcoPiates results (including Shannon index and AWCD) were also computed with the statistical software of the microbial identification system of Biolog.
The evenness index was calculated using the formula E = H' / ln S, where diversity "S" is the total number of carbon substrates utilized by microbial community in a given soil sample, and only the positive data, the optical density (OD) [greater than or equal to] 0.2, was used to calculate "S." The AWCD value at 120 h was used to calculate the Shannon index (H'); SPSS 17.0 and SIMCA-P 11.5 Demo software were used for PCA analysis [24].
Data show that, among the indexes of microbial diversity examined, S and AWCD were significantly higher in the managed system (Table 3) indicating a higher bacterial functional diversity and complexity of this part of the grove.
AWCD values were exported into BioNumerics 4.0.1 (Applied Maths, Austin TX) for cluster analysis using the Cosine coefficient and UPGMA dendrogram features.
The values of fruit yield, total microbial counts, and Biolog[R] metabolic diversity indices (H', S, E, and AWCD) were treated by analysis of variance (ANOVA) using the SAS software (SAS Institute, NC, USA) in order to detect significant differences among the effects due to the different agricultural practices (PROC GLM).
The effect of microbial community density is removed from Biolog data when initial values are adjusted for average well color development (AWCD).
The absorbance of the 31 substrates was used to calculate the average well color development (AWCD) and the values were plotted against the incubation period of the plate (Ultra et al., 2012).
The results showed significant positive correlations among WOC, WON, MBC, MBN and AWCD in soil (P<0.05 or P<0.01).
