Table 1 The impacts of soil, genotype, and plant compartment on observed bacterial OTUs and community composition (Hellinger transformed OTUs) using ANOVA and PERMANOVA, respectively

From: The core bacterial microbiome of banana (Musa spp.)

Predictor variable Number of observed OTUs Community composition

  1. P < 0.05*, P < 0.01**, P < 0.001***
  2. These results derive from our pot experiment which included five distinct soils, three Musa spp. genotypes, and eight compartments, each with 10 replicates
