a Relative abundances of bacterial phyla in different gut sections and cloacal swabs. b Heat map of the relative abundance of the 25 most abundant bacterial OTUs (accounting for a total of 89.5 ± 1.3% (mean ± SE) of sequences in the data set) in different digestive tract regions and cloacal swabs. Genus names provided on the right; U = unclassified genus within the given taxon; OTU numbers given in brackets
