  • a Taxonomic assignment is based on sequence information from an ∼300-bp fragment of the mitochondrial 16S gene.

  • b Includes data from reference 8 (n = 5; no. positive = 3).

  • c Includes data from reference 14 (n = 27; no. positive = 13).

  • d Includes data from references 47, 48, and 49 (n = 24; no. positive = 11).
