Combined relative abundance of indicator species. Open circles and dotted lines represent all indicator features, while, closed circles and solid lines represent those features for which A = 1. Treatment koalas are shown in red, while, control koalas are in blue. Points joined by lines indicate the mean values for each treatment, while, the error bars indicate the standard deviation. The koalas received messmate over the period indicated in green with the inoculation period indicated by the grey shading. Sampling point 1 = Capture; 2 = immediately prior to the introduction of messmate; 3 = three days after the introduction of messmate; 4 = immediately after the completion of the inoculations; 5 = nine days after the completion of the inoculations; and 6 = 18 d after the completion of the inoculations
