  1. Euclidean distances were calculated based on either CLR or PhILR transformed Amplicon Sequencing Variant (ASV) abundances. Significant predictors (P < 0.05) are shown in bold. The analysis included 450 samples from 309 individuals. Bird ID was included as a blocking factor to control for the repeated sampling of individuals
