Field Study Permissions

The following information was supplied relating to field study approvals (i.e., approving body and any reference numbers):

Costa Rican Ministry of the Environment and Energy permit #R-026-2015-OT-CONAGEBIO.

DNA Deposition

The following information was supplied regarding the deposition of DNA sequences:

The raw barcode sequence data are available from the Dryad Digital Repository: doi:10.5061/dryad.5fj6t. Raw sequences were aligned and quality control for unidentified base pairs and chimeras was performed according to the specifics noted at http://sites.oxy.edu/sgoffredi/Goffredi_Lab/LabScripts). The QIIME processed data are also available from the Dryad Digital Repository: doi:10.5061/dryad.5fj6t. 16S rRNA sequences for bacterial isolates are available from GenBank under accession numbers MF776885-MF776899.
