A corrigendum on
Long-Term Enrichment of Stress-Tolerant Cellulolytic Soil Populations following Timber Harvesting Evidenced by Multi-Omic Stable Isotope Probing

by Wilhelm, R. C., Cardenas, E., Leung, H., Szeitz, A., Jensen, L. D., and Mohn, W. W. (2017). Front. Microbiol. 8:537. doi: 10.3389/fmicb.2017.00537

The error occurred in the Materials and Methods section where we incorrectly reported a higher addition of 13C-labeled substrate than was added. The error does not affect any of our conclusions, but we felt it could mislead future researchers interested in utilizing SIP techniques. We corrected the error in two places (page 4 sections “Soil Respiration Assays” and “SIP Microcosms”) from “(10% w/w)” to “(1% w/w).” We utilized 10 mg 13C-cellulose per gram dry weight soil and inadvertently miscalculated the % w/w. The authors apologize for these mistakes and state that this does not change the scientific conclusions or merit of the article in any way.
