Summary of diversity assessments based on operational taxonomic unit (OTUs) (3% divergence) for each sample. A. Summary of rarefaction results based on operational taxonomic unit (OTUs) (3% divergence) for each sample. Rarefaction curves are displayed for each of the samples. CON = Control, 10 C = 10% Corn, 5S = 5% Sorghum, 10S = 10% Sorghum, 15S = 15% Sorghum. B. Summary of box plots revealing beta diversity associated with each treatment. The centroid (50%) and quantile (25 and 75%) values depicting the dispersion of OTUs associated with each dietary treatment. Dots indicate the OTUs associated with each animal. CON = Control, 10 C = 10% Corn, 5S = 5% Sorghum, 10S = 10% Sorghum, 15S = 15% Sorghum.
