Table 1 Properties of the iTag libraries of the individual gut compartments obtained from different host species. Diversity indices for crop (C), midgut (M), and hindgut (H) are based on OTUs, classification success is based on the number of assigned reads at different taxonomic levels

From: Diet is not the primary driver of bacterial community structure in the gut of litter-feeding cockroaches
