Table 2 Example of 3D patterns where organisms 2 and 3 are co-present if organism 1 is present and co-excluded if organism 1 is absent identified in anterior nares samples (genus level). Calculations have been performed with the minimum population threshold set to 0.1 Capital letters inside square brackets represent the lowest taxonomy level identified for each OTU: G genus, F family, O order, C class, and P phyla
