  1. Values given are means with standard deviations
  2. aApplying the two sample t test for the four types of sample comparisons, only the comparison of Fisher’s Alpha between Plin2-HF and Plin2-LF samples revealed a statistically significant difference in diversity (p < 0.05)
  3. bBeta diversity was calculated as the number of species in a sample/total_number of species across all 16 samples
