Fig. 2

Microbiota beta-diversity in natural mineral waters 1 and 2 after bottling. PCoA analysis based on weighted UniFrac distances calculated from bacterial 16S rRNA gene amplicon data. Each larger circle indicates the microbiota of an individual replicate water sample. In silico dataset re-sampling is visualized in PCoA plots as smaller circles. Each panel shows the same PCoA plot with individual coloring according to the year of sampling (year 2011 vs year 2012), type of microbiota (plankton vs biofilm), type of water (well water vs bottled water; water 1 vs water 2), and days after bottling (between 1 and 56 days)
