Distribution of Shannon diversity and evenness indices for samples as a function of the presence of three acute otitis media pathogens identified by RT-PCR. Diversity indices for samples with no AOM pathogens (dark blue bar) were significantly higher than those for samples with 1 pathogen present (lighter blue), which were significantly higher than those for samples with 2 or 3 AOM pathogens (lightest blue) (Duncan multiple range test, P < 0.05).

Relative abundances of genus-level taxa by the presence or absence of individual AOM pathogens stratified by antibiotic use. Relative abundance was calculated as the ratio of positive to negative taxon sample frequencies and 1 (i.e., positive/negative − 1) for S. pneumoniae (A), H. influenzae (B), or M. catarrhalis (C). Only ratios significantly different from 1 are shown (q < 0.05). Data are stratified by reported use of antibiotics (abx) within 6 months of sample collection. ∗∗, data for Haemophilus (B) were multiplied by 0.1 to keep all taxa on the same scale (the actual value is 8.7).
