Table 2 DistLM results correlating POC and DOC specific filtration rates (μmol/s/L sponge) and microbial community structure in sponges from Florida and Belize, showing analysis for all species, by category (HMA/LMA), and for all pairwise species comparisons

From: Testing the relationship between microbiome composition and flux of carbon and nutrients in Caribbean coral reef sponges
