The major protistan phyla detected at the Natural Tunnel State park during the spring-summer of 2016. Each phylum is represented by a circle. The x-axis represents the number of genera identified within each phylum and raw sequence abundance is represented by circle diameter. The number of genera (top number) and raw sequence abundance (bottom number) accompanies each circle. Phyla are organised into the Archaeplastida, Stramenopiles, Alveolata and Rhizaria (Rhi.) super groups according to Adl et al. (2012).
