Greater temporal alpha and beta diversity variation within individuals in Nunavut. a Distribution of dispersion in alpha diversity over time for each individual participant who contributed at least three samples. Dispersion is here defined as the absolute difference in Shannon diversity in each sample from the mean Shannon diversity for a particular individual. The participants from Nunavut have significantly higher alpha diversity dispersion over time than participants from Montréal (permutational t test, p = 0.0061). b Distribution of dispersion in beta diversity over time within the same participants. Dispersion is here defined as the distance of each sample to the centroid for that individual in compositional space, using unweighted UniFrac distances. The participants from Nunavut have significantly higher dispersion in beta diversity over time than participants from Montréal (permutational t test, p = 0.0124)
