Phylogenetic conservation of substrate use specialization in leaf litter bacteria
The distribution of one functional trait, CO2 production rate, across each temperature treatment. Each box represents the cumulative CO2 production rate for one bacterial isolate (16 total). Isolates are shaded according to their CO2 production rate at 18°C, where light and dark shaded boxes are relatively low and high producers at 18°C, respectively. Vertical, dashed line indicate the mean CO2 production each temperature treatment.
