Fig. 3

Heat-map showing the distribution of “Core” ASVs representing each time period. Hierarchical clustering of ASV abundance based on sampling time period clearly shows clustering based on sampling period. Red and purple represent sampling periods 1 and 4 and green and blue represent time periods 2 and 3. Samples were individually clustered using hierarchical clustering based on time period. The top 54 most abundant ASVs (5A) and the remaining top 51 ASVs (5B) are shown. Figures a and b are drawn using different scales due to differences in abundance. The top 3 ASVs include ASV_1_Pasteurellaceae, ASV_2_Mycoplasma, and ASV_3_Weeksellaea. (Key- * denotes taxa at family level, ** denotes taxa at order level, and *** denotes taxa at class level)
