Predicted night-time messmate DMI (g) change in response to the extent of koala GI microbiome change. a) shows change over the entire study and b) shows the change after the completion of the inoculations. GI microbiome change represented as the change in the Bacteroidetes to Firmicutes ratio, with negative values indicating a shift towards Bacteroidetes and positive values indicating a shift towards Firmicutes. Shading represents 90% confidence intervals. Predictions taken from the final linear mixed effects models
