Effect of diet on the G
microbiota. (A) Box and whisker plots of the Inverse Simpson’s index for animals on the control or high-fat diet. The microbiota from animals fed the control (blue) or high-fat (red) diets show a significant effect of diet (one-sided t-test: P <0.045). (B) The distributions of eight taxa showing a statistically significant effect of diet (Bonferonni-adjusted P <0.00000483) are depicted in box and whisker plots. The boxes define 75% of the data points. Blue = control diet, Red = high-fat diet. (C) The log-transformed abundances of 34 taxa with the smallest, non-adjusted ANOVA P values were used as variables for Linear Discriminant Analysis (LDA) with diet and parity as factors. The first two LDA functions account for >60% (X axis) and >30% (Y-axis) of the variation in these taxa.
