  • a The top 10 OTUs contributing to the difference between north and south groups are listed.

  • b That is, the fold difference in abundance between the north and south groupings.

  • c That is, the number assignment between 1 and 10, where 1 indicates the OTU with the most influence on differences between the north and south groupings.
