The barplot panel allow to produce barplots using a variety of metadata (Fig. 1). As for the other panels this will only apply to the datasets, samples, ASV and taxa selected. Two major settings can be used:
Color according to taxonomy or according to ecological function (Fig. 1). Ecological function is according the list from Sommeria-Klein et al. (2021) as appears in their Supplementary material.
Variable to use
- fraction name
- depth (in m) and depth_level
- date (see below)
The right side of the graph indicates, for each parameter range, the number of samples that fall into that range as well as the number of samples that contain the taxa selected.
Time series can also be plotted with data aggregated by:
- year (Fig. 3)
- month (Fig. 4)
To test this feature it is best to use a single dataset (e.g. Spanish Blanes from Giner et al. 2019) and to use a single size fraction. Using the zoom function of plotly, one can more easily display monthly and daily data (Fig. 4).
