  1. aIndicates contaminant OTUs detected in the DNA extraction negative controls. Sequences corresponding to OTU identities are included in Additional file 2 (filtered_contaminants.fna). Where accession numbers are given for OTU identities, the representative sequence from our dataset is 97% similar to the actual sequencing pertaining to that accession number.
