  1. 1OTUs for cbbL-gene clone libraries were determined at a 0.05 distance cut-off and OTUs for 16S rRNA clone libraries were determined at a 0.02 cut-off using the MOTHUR program. The Coverage, Shannon-Weiner (H), Simpson (1-D), Evenness (J) indices and Chao & ACE richness estimators were calculated using the OTU data.
