Table 2 R-values and significance level of pairwise comparisons from one-way analysis of similarities (ANOSIM) of DGGE profiles

From: Bacterial microbiota of Aedes aegypti mosquito larvae is altered by intoxication with Bacillus thuringiensis israelensis

  Control Susceptible Intermediate
Susceptible 0.770***   
Intermediate 0.984*** 0.897***  
Tolerant 0.680*** 0.782*** 0.489***
  1. ***P < 0.001
  2. Notes: Global R statistic = 0.722; Number of permutations = 5000. R ranges from 0 (no differences) to 1 (all dissimilarities between larval bacterial communities of the different treatment groups are larger than any dissimilarity within their own group)
