Phylogenetic tree of bacterial 16S rRNA sequences from two groups using the Neighbor-Joining method and Kimura two-parameter model in MEGA. Clones from Sika deer fed oak leaves beginning with SDMOL, followed by clone number, and from corn stalks beginning with SDCS, followed by clone number. Aquifex pyrophilus was used as the outgroup. Statistical significance was verified by bootstrapping 1000 replicates.
