Microbial biodiversity of anaerobic consortia: a community structure of the analyzed consortia. Genera were binned according to their relative abundance in samples. The most abundant genera (> 2.0%), the least abundant genera (< 0.1%) and the intermediate ones (0.1–2.0%) are shown in blue, green, and orange, respectively. Numbers of genera in each abundance bin were included in the plot. b Relative abundance of the most abundant genera in the analyzed samples. Only genera with a sequence percentage greater than 2% in at least one metagenome are shown. c Relative abundance of the 20 most abundant archaeal genera in the analyzed samples considering Archaea sequences only. ABF—agricultural biogas plant fermenter; ABF_TS—laboratory reactor inoculated with agricultural biogas plant fermenter sample; ABH—agricultural biogas plant hydrolyzer; CS—cattle slurry; CM—cattle manure; GM—gold mine; LB—lowland bog; WTP—wastewater treatment plant; WTP_TS—laboratory reactor inoculated with wastewater treatment plant sample. All data were analyzed with MG-RAST, using RefSeq as the reference database
