Table 2 Pairwise beta and alpha diversity comparisons of laboratory colonized F1 An. albimanus microbiota from different collection sites. Bray-Curtis diversity comparison showed significant differences in larval internal and cuticle surface microbiota between collection sites. In contrast, only adult cuticle surface but not internal microbiota were significantly different across collection sites. These comparisons were conducted using PERMANOVA (999 permutations) tests, with Benjamini-Hochberg FDR correction (q-value). Significance was determined at q < 0.05. n = No. of pools processed, and each pool comprised three individual mosquitoes.
