Soil pH is one of the biggest determinants for microbial diversity and composition. Many human interventions in soil chemistry involve processes that alter the pH. On Longwood University's campus, some regions are cultivated under a nutrient management plan. In this study, the microbial diversity of these human-cultivated regions was compared to that of wild regions. In general, it was found that the diversity of human-cultivated regions was higher than that of wild regions.
