Spearman’s Rank correlation for the community organisation (Co) and Pareto values. The Co was calculated based on the Lorenz distribution curves45,74, and the Pareto value was calculated as the total relative abundance of the 20% most abundant OTUs or TRFs75,76. A significant positive correlation between the Illumina and TRFLP data was observed for Co (ρ = 0.45 & P = 0.009) and Pareto (ρ = 0.56 & P = 0.0009). The grey zone represents the 95% confidence interval.
