Species diversity and richness of feline fecal microbiomes by diet.

<p>(a) Shannon diversity indices as inferred from normalized species counts. (b) Rarefaction analysis of species richness. Species diversity and richness was significantly higher (with <i>p</i><0.001) in the high-protein low-carbohydrate (HPLC) microbiome compared to the moderate-protein moderate-carbohydrate (MPMC) microbiome.</p>
