Figure S6. Specificity and cosmopolitanism plots (see figure 1), including also these OTUs that were found in just one sample. It can be seen that the trends are not very different to these shown in figure 1, with the exception of the curves for species. Since all these OTUs are considered environment-specific by definition, specificity percentage increases very much for species, and cosmopolitanism decreases in the same way.
