Overall microbial diversity comparisons of all remaining samples in the dataset after decontamination and filtering (n = 104), showing both oral (n = 26), skin (n = 17), cloacal (n = 5), faecal (n = 17), milk (n = 4), joey skin, oral, and cloaca (n = 9) and pouch samples divided into adult (n = 14) and subadult (n = 12) groupings. a Whisker-box plot showing the alpha diversity (richness) within each bodysite group. Horizontal lines in the boxes represent the median values; the lower and upper bound of boxes represent 25th and 75th percentiles, respectively. b Principal coordinates analysis (PCoA) plots based on the unweighted UniFrac distance matrix, portraying beta diversity between the different body site samples. The two plots display coordinates 1 versus 2 (left pane) and coordinates 1 versus 3 (right pane)
