Long-term plant diversity studies on soil biota are rare. Relationship between sampling time since the establishment of the biodiversity experiment, number of studies investigating soil biota and percentage of significant plant diversity effects on soil biota (Eisenhauer et al. 2012a). Size of the bubbles and respective numbers indicate percentage of significant plant diversity effects (regression between number of studies and time: R²=0.56, p=0.033, between time and significant plant diversity effects: R²=0.66, p=0.014, n=20 studies).
