Fig. 2

Family-level stacked bar plots showing bacterial community composition of healthy and insulted skin samples of black-tip reef sharks (Carcharhinus melanopterus) collected at different sites in the Amirante Islands, Seychelles. a Samples from the skin around the gill area. b Samples from the skin on the back of the shark. There are no statistically significant differences at OTU level for health state (‘healthy’, ‘insulted’; PERMANOVA, Pseudo-F = 1.1031; p = 0.2646), and location on skin (‘gill’, ‘back’; PERMANOVA, Pseudo-F = 1.316, p = 0.2839). Community composition was significantly different at OTU level between study sites (PERMANOVA, Pseudo-F = 4.1429, p < 0.0001)
