Ordination biplots generated by principal component analysis (PCA) of bacterial communities based on the genus level, in the rhizosphere of potato cultivars with different starch content and corresponding bulk soil, at different growth stages.

<p>Centroids indicate the effect of growth stage on the community structure. The eigenvalues displayed on the diagram axes refer to the percentage variation of the respective axis. (yp) young plant, (f) flowering, (sn) senescence, (A) Aveka, (Av) Aventra, (K) Karnico, (M) Modena, (P) Premiere, (D) Désirée, (b) bulk, (HS) high starch tuber, (LS) low starch tuber.</p>
