Abundance and co-occurrence of extracellular capsules increase environmental breadth: Implications for the emergence of pathogens

Fig 2

Quantification and distribution of capsule systems in Prokaryotes.

The boxes indicate the percentage of genomes in the clade harbouring each system. The colours of the boxes follow a gradient from white (0%) to blue (100%) as shown in the legend. The bottom bar plot shows the total number of detected systems. The bar plot on the right represents the number of genomes per clade and in parenthesis we show the genomes that add to twenty or less. In the absence of a consensual phylogenetic tree of Prokaryotes, the cladogram was adapted from Abby et al [36] and completed with information given by [37].
