The dataset contains different types of bacteria and fungi present in soils of GIRF bioretention. Two sets of samples were taken for the study. We took first set of samples in Oct 2013, and the second set of samples in May 2015. Phospholipid Fatty Acid (PLFA) reflects the occurrence of mainly living organisms or recently dead organisms. Neutral Lipid Fatty Acid(NLFA) indicates the energy stored. Phospholipid fatty acid (PLFA) analysis was performed using an Agilent 7890A gas chromatograph with an Agilent 5975C series mass selective detector. All units are in nmol/gm of soil.
