(a,b) Principal coordinate analysis with unweighted (a) and weighted (b) UniFrac distance show that the root microbiota of indica separate from that of japonica in field I in the first two axes, indicating that the root microbiota of indica are distinct from that of japonica (P < 0.001, PERMANOVA by Adonis). Ellipses cover 68% of the data for each rice subspecies. (c,d) Principal coordinate analysis with unweighted (c) and weighted (d) UniFrac distance showing that the root microbiota of indica separate from those of japonica in field II in the first two axes, revealing that root microbiota of indica are distinct from those of japonica (P < 0.001, PERMANOVA by Adonis). The numbers of replicated samples are as follows: in field I, indica (n = 201), japonica (n = 80); in field II, indica (n = 201), japonica (n = 81).
