Table 4 Good’s coverage and alpha diversity parameters of dolphin blow samples

From: Highly abundant core taxa in the blow within and across captive bottlenose dolphins provide evidence for a temporally stable airway microbiota

  1. The table shows the average of Good’s coverage as well as richness, diversity, Chao1 and ACE species estimators of blow samples per dolphin and number of intra-core zOTUs over a period of five months (weeks 6, 11, 19, 28). Gemma and Stella were not included in the calculation of intra-core zOTUs, as they lacked the according samples (No of core zOTUs: NA)
