Figure 3

Microbial community differences through SSWD symptom progression. (A) Proportions of OTUs classified to the Order level in microbial communities from sea stars sampled through disease stages. Disease stage number relates to the P. ochraceus SSWD symptom guide from seastarwasting.org with the addition of a category 5 for dead individuals. (B) Rarefaction plot of mean chao1 alpha diversity estimates as a function of sequencing depth for samples grouped by disease stage. Shaded areas represent the standard error of the mean (SEM) for the chao1 estimates.
