Table 1 Descriptive statistics of networks representing interactions between dominant ASV (mean contribution of > 0.125% total sequence reads per sample) in microbiomes of healthy and diseased corals. The rows ‘+ healthy’ and ‘+ diseased’ represent sub-summaries for microbes showing significantly higher relative densities in healthy and diseased samples, respectively. Mean degree indicates the average number of interactions per ASV. Saturation is the number of realised interactions relative to the number of possible interactions. Connection strength refers to mean correlation coefficients between interacting ASVs
