Pyrosequencing of Bacterial Symbionts within Axinella corrugata Sponges: Diversity and Seasonal Variability

Figure 2

Ace and Shannon diversity measures.

To prevent bias due to sampling depth, all samples were first rarefied to 18,000 sequences per sample. The Amphimedon community appears less diverse relative to the Axinella samples. All Axinella samples were significantly more diverse according to Ace and Shannon measures (95% confidence intervals).
