In all three panels, the relative abundances of Melainabacteria in different samples types are plotted as box plots (log10 transformed; i.e., 10−1 = 0.1%). Data were obtained from the QIIME database, derive from a variety of studies, and are publically available (Figure 9—source data 1): (A) soil, sediment, and water sites, (B) different human body sites (GI = gastrointestinal), (C, left) mammal stool classified by host diet, (C, right) country of origin for human stool. UD = undetermined.
