A corrigendum on

Individual Signatures Define Canine Skin Microbiota Composition and Variability
by Cuscó A, Sánchez A, Altet L, Ferrer L, Francino O. Front Vet Sci (2017) 4:6. doi:10.3389/fvets.2017.00006

In the original article, there was a mistake in Figure 3 as published. Although Figure 3 is scientifically meaningful, it does not fit the legend and the associated text on the manuscript. The corrected Figure 3 appears below. The authors apologize for this error and state that this does not change the scientific conclusions of the article in any way.


Figure 3. Dog skin microbiota analysis considering site. (A) PCoA plot using weighted UniFrac metrics colored by skin site with values of ANOSIM and adonis statistical tests. Perianal region is circled in brown. (B) Boxplots of alpha diversity values. Marked with a red asterisk the two comparisons that were statistically different when using Monte Carlo permutation test (P < 0.05). (C) Bar plot representing skin microbiome composition at phylum level per skin site; each bar represents the mean values of the nine dogs per each skin site. (D) Histogram of linear discriminant analysis (LDA) effect size scores for differentially abundance distribution (α = 0.05, LDA score >3) of bacterial phyla and classes among skin sites.
