A principal components analysis (PCA) was done with the quantitative variables of the surface horizons studied, in order to synthesise the variation patterns in those elements that are potentially associated with the production of Tuber melanosporum carpophores and to quantify the overall impact of the surface horizons on carpophore production in this fungus.
