The core microbiota of bottled water. a Venn diagram showing core OTUs (in white, with their individual names) and the total number of OTUs (in black) in well waters or bottled waters sampled 1 day (“early”) and > 14 days (“late”) after filling in PET bottles and how these are shared between these categories. b Mean relative abundances of the 12 core OTUs in all analyzed plankton and biofilm samples from different days after bottling. For example, OTU 1 was more abundant in plankton than in biofilm (p = 4.37e-08) and OTU 2 was more abundant in biofilm than in plankton (p = 0.006867) (based on one-sided Wilcoxon rank sum test). Furthermore, OTU 1 was more abundant in plankton (p = 0.008156) and less abundant in biofilm (p = 4.423e-05) than OTU 2 (based on paired one-sided Wilcoxon signed-rank test)
