  1. The FST estimates are based on SNP (single-nucleotide polymorphism) results published previously (Renaut et al. 2011). The core microbiota is represented by percent of shared sequences for each form in each lake
  2. D dwarf whitefish, N normal whitefish, T total number of whitefish per lake, W Number of water samples
