  1. Means and variations of the relative abundances in relative fluorescent units (rfu) of individual ribotypes and associated phyla (see Additional file 3: Methods) are presented for each site. Column three indicates the membership in the respective baseline community {Burren (B), Ardgillan (A), Wicklow (W)}. Superscript letters indicate the group differences between relative abundances across sites. The significance of distribution differences between sites are presented in the last column by F-values and their significance level (p = 0.05 ≥ * > 0.01 ≥ ** > 0.001 ≥ ***).
  2. Abbreviations: ni – not identified, An – Actinobacteria, Ad – Acidobacteria, F – Firmicutes, αP – α-Proteobacteria, γP – γ-Proteobacteria.
