Data from: Tipping elements in the human intestinal ecosystem

Leo Lahti, Jarkko Salojärvi, Anne Salonen, Marten Scheffer & Willem M. De Vos
The microbial communities living in the human intestine can have profound impact on our well-being and health. However, we have limited understanding of the mechanisms that control this complex ecosystem. Here, based on a deep phylogenetic analysis of the intestinal microbiota in a thousand western adults, we identify groups of bacteria that exhibit robust bistable abundance distributions. These bacteria are either abundant or nearly absent in most individuals, and exhibit decreased temporal stability at the...
