Characteristics of four infant enterotypes associated with temporal and geographic distribution. A Geographic (top) and temporal (bottom) prevalence of 13,776 stool samples used in this study. B Four enterotypes identified using Jensen–Shannon distance and partitioning around medoid (PAM) clustering in the first three years after birth. The colored ellipses cover 90% of the samples belonging to the enterotype group. The blue cloud (left) represents the local density estimated from the coordinates of stool samples. Box plots on the right show the relative abundance of the major bacterial contributor of each enterotype. C Prevalence of each enterotype in the first 3 years. D Longitudinal development of microbiome maturation based on the microbiota age throughout 3 years. The blue cloud represents the local density estimated from the coordinates of stool samples. E Temporal and geographic distribution of different enterotypes across 17 countries
