Table S1 Information and basic statistics on the 93 samples newly sequenced in this study.
Table S2 Information on the soil samples included in the source tracking analysis.
Table S3 Information and basic statistics on the 39 additional mammalian samples included in our comparative study.
Table S4 Results from the source-tracking analysis using a previously published set of mammal gut samples, as well as soil samples, as potential sources to determine which of the 92 new samples were potentially contaminated with soil.
Table S5 Mean relative abundance (RA) of the taxa from Table 1 in the six diet groups: myrmecophages, insectivores, omnivores, carnivores, herbivores, and folivores.
Table S6 Results of anosim and the Bartlett test of homogeneity of variances between diet groups for the full (All) and reduced (Captive) data sets, including pairwise comparisons of diet categories.
Fig. S1 Proportion of Phyla represented in sequences that did not hit Greengenes.
Fig. S2 Results from the source-tracking analysis using a previously published set of mammal gut samples, as well as soil samples, as potential sources to determine which of the 92 samples were potentially contaminated with soil.
Fig. S3 Procrustes analysis comparing unweighted UniFrac distances for 16 mammalian samples sequenced for V2 using 454 technology (Muegge et al. 2011) and resequenced as part of this study for the V4 region using an Illumina platform.
Fig. S4 Taxa summary plots at the order level for 94 fecal samples representing 47 mammalian species ordered by host diet (upper panel) and by host order (lower panel).
Fig. S5 Neigbor-Net network based on unweighted UniFrac distances between 94 mammalian gut samples colored by diet (see inset legend).
Fig. S6 Principal coordinate analysis (PCoA) of 94 mammalian samples (with potentially contaminated samples removed) based on unweighted UniFrac distances and colored by wild (red) vs. captive (blue) status.
