Spatial structure of bacterial communities along a sediment sample covering 8000 years of Baltic Sea history.

Abstract

<p>The piecewise Mantel correlogram was based on the Bray and Curtis dissimilarity matrix (n = 148×219) of bacterial terminal restriction fragments of the 16S rRNA genes. Autocorrelations (Mantel r) were plotted against distance classes (<a href="http://www.plosone.org/article/info:doi/10.1371/journal.pone.0054326#pone.0054326.s013" target="_blank">Table S6</a>), which were based on the Euclidean distance between sampling depths. Red, green and black circles represent the distinct trends detected. Filled circle: <i>P</i><0.05. Open circle: nonsignificant value.</p
