Table 1 Bacterial population size (as percentage of total 16S rRNA gene reads) of bacteria that show spatial responsiveness to M. vaginatus. Aggregating and segregating OTUs were determined statistically as per Fig. 1c, each OTU was then weighed by its relative abundance, and all contributions added

From: Spatial segregation of the biological soil crust microbiome around its foundational cyanobacterium, Microcoleus vaginatus, and the formation of a nitrogen-fixing cyanosphere
