Uncovering the drivers of host-associated microbiota with joint species distribution modelling

Bjork, Johannes R.; Hui, Francis; O’Hara, Robert B.; Montoya, Jose M.


In addition to the processes structuring free‐living communities, host‐associated microbiota are directly or indirectly shaped by the host. Therefore, microbiota data have a hierarchical structure where samples are nested under one or several variables representing host‐specific factors, often spanning multiple levels of biological organization. Current statistical methods do not accommodate this hierarchical data structure and therefore cannot explicitly account for the effect of the host in...[Show more]
