From: Heterogeneous development of methanogens and the correlation with bacteria in the rumen and cecum of sika deer (Cervus nippon) during early life suggest different ecology relevance

Fig. 5

The co-occurrence correlation between methanogens (species level) and bacteria (genus level) in rumen (a) and cecum (b). The co-occurrence was constructed from the taxon abundance across the tree time points for rumen and cecum, respectively. The gray and gold lines represent the negative and positive correlation, respectively. The width of lines indicates the correlation coefficient, with bold lines for a greater coefficient, while the thick lines for a weaker coefficient. The pink rhombus and green circle represent the methanogens and bacteria, respectively. The asterisk means the unclassified bacteria genera or methanogens species
