Global distribution and biodiversity patterns of Woesearchaeota in seven types of biotopes from 133 libraries/studies. a Global occurrence and abundance of Woesearchaeota. The abundance of 16S rRNA gene sequences of Woesearchaeota is relative to total archaea sequences in the clone libraries/studies. Each node represents one clone library/study. Node color indicates the type of biotopes, and node size represents the relative abundance in the corresponding clone libraries/studies. b Principal coordinate analysis (PCoA) obtained with the UniFrac distance matrix comparing the 133 libraries/studies summarized in Additional file 1: Table S1. c Samples clustered by the seven types of biotopes. Distances between clusters are shown in UniFrac units: a distance of 0 indicates that two environments are identical while a distance of 1 indicates that two environments contain mutually exclusive lineages. Abbreviation: n, number of sequence; Nlib, number of libraries; PD ± SD, phylogenetic diversity (PD) with standard deviation (SD); PSV, phylogenetic species variability; Fwc, freshwater; Fsed, freshwater sediment; S, soil; Msed, marine sediment; Mwc, marine water column; Hsal, hypersaline environment; and Hdv, hydrothermal vent
