Indicator species OTUs shows distinct taxonomic abundance differences. Indicator species OTUs are ordered by hierarchical clustering of Kendall correlations on relative abundance (inset heatplots) and plotted along an axis of log2 fold change. OTU taxonomic assignments are shown at the lowest level resolved, and asterisked taxa indicate FDR corrected significant values based on Wilcoxon test of abundance. Indicator species comparisons were done between a soldier castes of M. falciger across all runs, and b between termite species of M. falciger and M. natalensis within Run3
