Distributions and variations (shown as standard deviation) of CAZymes (a) and the 44 functional genes (b) revealed by DNA-SIP based shotgun metagenomic sequencing that potentially related to plant residue decomposition in the dominant bacterial phyla across decomposition stages. The functional genes were merged into four groups (that is, cellulose degradation, hemicellulose degradation, lignin degradation, and cello-oligosaccharides degradation) according to substrate classification. The relative abundances of CAZymes and functional genes were Z-score transformed. GH glycoside hydrolase, GT glycosyl transferase, PL polysaccharide lyase, CE carbohydrate esterase, CBM carbohydrate-binding module, AA auxiliary activities. For more detailed functional gene profiles of (b), see Additional file 1: Table S1
