General Information:
Title:MycoDB: Database for meta-analyses of mycorrhizal inoculation
Identifier:nceas.287
Alternate Identifier:MycoDB: Database for meta-analyses of mycorrhizal inoculation
Abstract:
MycoDB is a web-based tool developed for the purpose of compiling data on mycorrhizal experiments. A web tool allows multiple collaborators to contribute information at different times from various locations, while still maintaining the integrity of the data. We hope to use this database to perform meta-analyses to synthesize the currently disparate body of empirical work on mycorrhizal function within communities and ecosystems.

Description:

Meta-analysis

Web of Science Reference Database was searched for keywords "mycorrhiz* AND inocul*". References were randomized and distibuted among researchers. Certain papers were eliminated from the set according to criteria set by the group members. Data was extracted from the papers and entered into the database using the MycoDB web interface.
