Analysis of the evolution of bacterial communities of unexposed mosquito larvae over time. a Non-metric multi-dimensional scaling plot (NMDS) of larval bacterial communities based on DGGE profile analysis (2D stress = 0.12). b Hierarchical clustering (group average method) of the samples. NMDS and clustering were based on fourth-root transformed distances obtained using Bray-Curtis dissimilarity index. Distances were calculated based on DGGE gel provided in Additional file 1: Figure S1. Data from unexposed individuals sampled at 0, 5, 10 and 24 h are represented by circles, triangles, diamonds and squares, respectively. Sample names are constituted of the time of sampling associated with the replicate number
