Principal coordinates analysis (PCoA) of all samples in the data set. Axis 1 and Axis 2 represent the coordinates of the greatest sources of orthogonal variation within the data and represent 27.9 and 9.4% of variation in the entire data set respectively. Whilst results from biological replicates and distinct tanks are generally consistent, Axis 1 represents the difference in diversity between the adult frogs as compared to both tadpoles and environmental water samples. Axis 2 shows close clustering between adults housed in standard and clean conditions, and tadpoles and their environmental water samples for clean conditions only. However, a significant change in diversity is seen for tadpoles from standard conditions, despite water samples from standard tanks showing similar profiles to those from clean tanks
