  • a The pairwise comparisons were performed on T-RFLP profiles generated from the average of the 4 replicates per sample/time point.

  • b The pairwise comparison between tT0 and gG0 gave a Morisita index of 0.47 (ADONIS P < 0.05).

  • c Asterisks indicate significant (P < 0.05) differences of the pairwise comparisons according to ADONIS.
