  1. 1. Mean relative abundance of feature when it was detected in the GI microbiomes of koalas feeding on messmate
  2. 2. Donors = the number of donor koalas the feature was found in
  3. 3. A = the probability that a sample came from a messmate koala given the feature was found. Only taxa with A > 80% were considered as indicator taxa
  4. 4. B = the probability of finding that feature in a koala feeding on messmate. Only taxa with B > 35% were considered as indicator taxa
  5. 5. stat = √ (A x B)
  6. 6. p value of ‘stat’ was determined by 1000 random permutations of the data
  7. 7. Established In = the number of treatment koalas the feature was found to establish in
  8. 8. Unassigned = features that did not fall within a recognised taxonomic classification
