Network analysis of Polyrhachis with edges representing the main community bacterial members. The edges were colored according to the different shared bacteria: Nocardia (purple), Lactobacillus (orange), Wolbachia (brown), Enterobacteriaceae (pink), Enterobacteriacea - other (yellow), Candidatus Blochmannia (green), Sodalis (light blue), Thiotrichaceae (dark blue), and Others (red) a Default parameters of Spring-embedded edge-weighted algorithm. The host nodes are not visible for easy viewing, but can still be represented by each vertice. In this analyze the vertices (host) that share more OTUs appear close together. Note how complex the bacterial community network is. b Default parameters manually edited. After this edition, it is possible to visualize which bacteria are better represented in this network. As in this case, the bacterium Enterobacteriaceae in pink is highly represented in the bacterial community of Polyrhachis
