When we assessed differences in mean relative abundance of the families to which the 631 OTUs belong according to the four categories of current farming (no farming, crop farming only, animal farming only, both crop and animal farming), the top five families were Moraxellaceae, Clostridiaceae, Prevotellaceae, Propionibacteriaceae, and Bacillaceae (Table S8).
By contrast, the forest sites had relatively higher proportions of Chromatiaceae (1.9%) and Bacilli (Figure 1(b)) than the other land use types, with the family Bacillaceae being abundant (12%) within the class Bacilli, unlike in the other land use types.
Individuals fed on the Mediterranean diet have lower numbers of Bacillaceae and Proteobacteria but higher Clostridium and Bacteroidetes populations [83].
In the acute uninfected group, Bacillaceae species appeared especially highly variable, while in the acute infected group, Lactobacillus, Proteus, and an unspecified Bacteroidetes genus appeared to be inconstant (Figure 1, Table S5).

Clostridium was the most abundant genus of bacteria in the leachate from carcass A after 5 months, Bacillaceae was dominant in the leachate in carcass B after 4 months, and Clostridium and Clostridiales were dominant in the leachate from carcass C after 4 months.
Of the recorded bacterial species, 54.55% belonged to Enterobacteriaceae, 18.18% to Staphylococcaceae and 9.09% each to Bacillaceae, Micrococcaceae and Pseudomonadaceae (Fig.
