  1. Phyla have total relative abundances > 1% and are displayed from overall highest relative abundance to lowest relative abundance. Relative abundances are displayed as mean ± standard error. Significant comparisons had adjusted p-values < 0.05 based on ANOVA and Tukey's HSD tests, or had adjusted p-values < 0.025 based on Kruskal–Wallis and Dunn's Tests, depending on data normality
