Abundance of 6 OTUs that are statistically different in horses with Inflammatory Airway Disease (IAD) (n = 7; red bars) compared to healthy controls (n = 6; blue bars) in the Lower Respiratory Tract (LRT) from samples obtained on day 0 (prior to dexamethasone treatment). No differentially abundant OTUs were identified between disease status in the upper respiratory tract (URT). Each panel shows the abundance for an individual OTU and is labelled with the taxa and taxa rank (p: Phylum or g: Genus) that was assigned to it
