Effect of the sterilization treatment on the internal microbiome of ticks. a Bar plots of the relative abundance of the 10 most abundant bacterial families in each sample regrouped by sample categories; EthCarcass corresponds to ethanol-treated carcass ticks, EthGut to ethanol midguts, BleCarcass to bleached carcass ticks, and BleGut to bleached tick midguts. b NMDS plot of generalized Unifrac (α = 0.5) distances between all categories with ellipses encompassing normal confidence range for each category
