Following publication of the original paper [1], an error was reported in the third paragraph in the section “Analysis of GMB composition and its correlates” (page 3 of the PDF). The first sentence of the text should refer to Table 2, but mistakenly refers to Table 1.

The sentence should read:

“Fungal (ITS1) GMB populations were dominated by Aspergillus proliferans and Saccharomyces cerevisiae in both mainland US-born and Latin American-born groups (Table 2).”

As a result Table 2 appears further in the article, after the second reference to Table 2.
