Figure 3 Beta diversity evaluated by Bray-Curtis distance and illustrated by the NMDS plot. This is a measure of beta diversity, and quantifies the similarity in abundance of taxa between samples. The ovals contain 95% of the probabilities for mucosa and stool. This plot shows a clear separation of mucosa and stool samples (P = 0.005). NMDS: Nonparametric multidimensional scaling; CD: Crohn’s disease.
