Microbial diversity of strawberry flowers and pollen. a Pyrosequencing of microbes in strawberry flowers (n = 9, 13 independent experiments) and b pollen (n = 2, 9 independent experiments). Taxonomic assignment was conducted at the family level with the Silva database (http://www.arb-silva.de/) and a cutoff of 97% similarity. Flower and pollen samples were collected from November 2013 (0 week) to March 2014 (24 week). Heatmap of hierarchical clustering of bacterial communities by 16S rRNA region. c Flower samples and d pollen samples. Heatmap color (purple to yellow) displayed from low to high abundance of each OTU. e Beta diversity tree (Minkowski distance) of samples with gray mold disease incidence. f Venn diagram of common OTU numbers in flower and pollen samples during the period of low gray mold disease incidence. g Gray mold incidence over a growing season as related to Streptomyces OTU read numbers. Gray mold incidence, bars represent standard error of nine blocks, each block contains 150 plants. Star (*) indicates statistically significant differences between disease incidence and OTU numbers of Streptomyces globisporus NRRL B-2872, which is identical to SP6C4 and SF7B6 by t-test (P value < 0.05). Bars represent standard error. a, b, e, f, g Source data are provided as a Source Data file
