Table 1 OTUs identified using SIMPER analyses most responsible for bacterial community differences between males and females at the uropygial gland and brood patch

From: Morphological and genetic factors shape the microbiome of a seabird species (Oceanodroma leucorhoa) more than environmental and social factors
