  1. Normalized mean values (μ) and standard deviations (σ) for the number of OTUs, Shannon index and Inverse Simpsons index. Normalized values were obtained by random resampling according to the smallest sample size (n = 11625, specimen 6) and standard errors were obtained by bootstrapping (n = 1000). OTUs are clustered according to a 97% sequence similarity cut-off value.
