We provide data on how legume-rhizobia interaction webs react to invasions by exotic legumes. This is the first study of its kind and found that general hypotheses derived from above-ground mutualistic webs may not hold for below-ground counterparts. Specifically, we found that legume-rhizobia interactions at the community level are highly specialised resulting in strongly modular webs, which are not nested, and that invasive legumes do not infiltrate existing native webs but rather form unique and novel modules in webs.
