Figure 3

Bacterial community composition in faecal and caecum content samples based on 16S rRNA gene sequencing. The mean bacterial composition is shown at the family level for faecal samples obtained before intervention (A-C), after intervention (D-F) and caecal content samples (G-I) for animal in CON, XOS and BIF groups. Differences in mean relative abundances were only observed between faecal and caecal samples as detailed in TableĀ 2.
