Estimating gut microbiome taxonomic composition by comparison to de novo bacterial genome assemblies also produces congruent evidence for social structuring. (A) Proportional representation of common phyla in each sample, grouping phyla not present at >1% in at least one sample together are ‘rare phyla’. (B) Principal coordinates projection for individuals from Mica's group and Viola's group separates samples by social group along the first axis. (C) Strength of pairwise grooming relationships, and thus within group social structure, explains levels of similarity and dissimilarity in gut microbiome taxonomic composition. Data are shown for Mica's group.
