Experimental design used to test for an effect of filter material (Cellulose Nitrate, CN; Glass Fibre, GF) pore size and extraction method (PCI-1, PCI-2 and CI, see methods section for their description) on the detection eukaryotic DNA yield and the number of Operational Taxonomic Units (OTUs) estimated from seawater samples from a commercial port. Numbers in parentheses are the number of replicates with the target number first followed by the final number included in statistical analyses. Colours indicate experimental treatments where filter material is in blue (GF) or red (CN) and extraction methods are in variations of blue or red depending on filter material.
