Summary table of bacterial OTUs found in Polyrhachis samples with 16S rRNA amplicon sequencing. a Polyrhachis subgenera used in this study and their bacterial communities. Bar graphs for each library (one column = community from a single worker) show the percentage of sequence reads classified to selected 97% OTUs. Each color represents a distinct bacterium. The samples were grouped according to the subgenera which they belong. b Summary of all OTUs found in this study with legend ordered in proportion of reads found across all 132 samples. The relative abundance of reads at the taxonomic level of bacteria is displayed. Orders that accounted for less than 0.8% in a sample are summarized in a category termed “Other”
