Canonical correspondence analysis (CCA) of the relative abundance of bacterial genera and environmental variables in gut compartments of the litter-feeding cockroaches Ergaula capucina (Ec), Byrsotria fumigata (Bf), and Pycnoscelus surinamensis (Ps). Each dot represents a genus-level group, with the color indicating the family affiliation and the size indicating its mean relative abundance. Each of the 435 bacterial genus-level groups was tested for covariance with the environmental variables: physicochemical conditions (pH, hydrogen partial pressure, and redox potential), host species, and gut compartment (gray labels). Approximate weighted averages of the communities in each gut compartment are shown as boxes labeled with the corresponding species abbreviation. Environmental variables are shown as directional axes (arrow length proportional to the total variance constrained by the variable). The position of a bacterial genus or community relative to the axis of an environmental variable indicates the level of correspondence between the respective genus or community and the environmental variable. Constrained inertia is equivalent to the total variance constrained by all environmental variables combined. For more details, see Additional fileĀ 2: Table S2
