Fig. 6

The colors in the heatmap indicate variation in the relative abundance of different bacteria in Polyrhachis, ranging from 0% (light yellow) to 100% (red). Dendrograms were generated from Bray–Curtis distance matrices. For easy viewing, we choose to show only OTUs with more than 400 reads Note there are strains of Enterobacteriaceae restricted to specific subgenera of Polyrhachis, such as Candidatus Blochmannia-New.ReferenceOTU70 with Myrma from the Afrotropics, Enterobacteriaceae-New.ReferenceOTU13 with Polyrhachis, and Enterobacteriaceae-New.CleanUp.ReferenceOTU0 with Myrmhopla. In this analysis the presence of multiple Wolbachia infections in some Polyrhachis samples is also evident
