  1. Only three species that contributed the most to the dissimilarity are shown. The average dissimilarity is the contribution of each species to the dissimilarity between the two groups according to Bray-Curtis similarity. Contribution % indicated the contribution of each species to the group pair dissimilarity in percentage values. Cumulative % indicates the cumulative value of the contribution of each species to the dissimilarity
