Table 3 Pairwise alpha diversity comparisons of laboratory colonized F1 An. albimanus microbiota from different collection sites. Shannon diversity comparison showed significant differences in larval internal but not cuticle surface microbiota between collection sites (two of the three pairs). In contrast, there was no significant difference in adult internal or cuticle surface microbiota between collection sites. These comparisons were conducted using Kruskal-Wallis 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.
