OTU richness and abundance at multiple taxonomic levels. a ‘Phototrophs’ vs. ‘Heterotrophs’, b photrophic phyla, c phototrophic classes, and d Ulvophycean families within orders Bryopsidales and ‘Ulvales-Ulothichales’. Richness represents OTU diversity as percentage of the total number of OTUs. Abundance represents OTUs read counts as percentage of total mapped reads per sample. Family abbreviations as follows: ‘Ulv’ Ulvellaceae, ‘Un.’ Unresolved Ostreobidineae, ‘Ma’ Maedaceae, ‘Ha’ Hamidaceae, ‘Od’ Odoaceae, ‘Si’ Siphonogramenaceae, ‘Ph’ Phaeophilaceae, ‘Ps’ Pseudostreobiaceae. ‘Others’ includes very low abundance representatives (each <1 % of mapped reads in average) of phylum Cryptophyta and ‘Chlorarachniophyta’ and the classes Bangiophyceae, Compsopogonophyceae, Chlorarachniophyceae, Cryptophyceae, Pavlovophyceae, Phaeophyceae, Prasinophyceae, Stylonematophyceae and unresolved members of the Chlorophyta, Haptophyta, and Ochrophyta (See Additional file 7: Table S6, Additional file 8: Table S7; Additional file 11: Figure S4 for further details)
