Effects of light on dust community β-diversity and microbial abundance. a t-distributed stochastic neighbor embedding (t-SNE; [52]) visualization of pairwise Canberra distances, calculated using log101+x-transformed RSV absolute abundances. Ellipses delineate treatment groups and represent one standard deviation from the group centroid. Points represent bacterial communities that are colored by their corresponding lighting regime: dark are gray, visible are gold, and ultraviolet are blue. The size of each point is scaled proportionately to the qPCR-based estimates of absolute bacterial abundances. Dark and light shades of each color indicate whether the sample represents the total or viable community respectively. b Boxplots of qPCR-based estimates of log10-transformed absolute abundance per milligram dust. The left and righthand boxes for each factor level correspond to the total and living bacterial abundances respectively. Colors are the same as in panel a
