Fig. D1. Rarefaction curves of 16S pyrosequencing data for diversity treatments in the removal experiment. Each data point represents the average number of sequences obtained for three replicates. Although no curve reached a definitive plateau, the spread between the high diverse treatments (10-1 and 10-3) and low diverse treatment (10-6) indicates that estimations of species richness are reliable between treatments.
