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)
## Interactive plots Plots are interactive and there is a menu on the upper right (Fig. 2). In particular you can isolate a specific taxonomic group by clicking on the group (Fig. 4).
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).
