  1. The pairwise R values give absolute measure of how separated the groups are. R >0.75: groups being well separated; R >0.5: groups overlapping but clearly different; R >0.25: groups barely separable at all. Bold types indicate separable communities.
  2. Analyses performed on square-root transformed data.
