Figure 6

Correlation coefficients (Spearman’s) between genetic distance among individuals and similarity of microbial communities associated with host gill tissue. The blue and red lines represent ambient and disturbed communities, respectively. OTUs were iteratively removed with increasing abundance thresholds and significance of each correlation was assessed by Mantel tests with 1000 randomisations. Significant correlations (p < 0.05) are shown as triangles and could only be observed for correlations containing rare parts of the ambient communities.
