Table 3 Seriation analyses (similarity of ARISA patterns between consecutive samples) within the different sample groups (fermenter/post digester, bacteria/archaea for each), using the Spearman rank correlation methods

From: Process parameters and changes in the microbial community patterns during the first 240 days of an agricultural energy crop digester

  roh-value p value  (%)
Methanogenic archaea
 Fermenter 0.529 <0.1
 Post digester 0.555 <0.1
 Fermenter 0.552 <0.1
 Post digester 0.498 <0.1
