  1. Alpha diversity reflected the richness and diversity of species in samples, and it has a variety of indicators: observed species, shannon, simpson, chao1, ace, goods coverage, PD whole tree. The higher the value of Observed species, the higher the species richness are. Shannon index evaluates the richness and evenness of species composition in the sample. The greater the value, the more abundant and evenly distributed the species are. The Chao1 and ACE indices measure species richness. Goods coverage index represents sequencing depth. PD whole tree index reflects phylogenetic diversity
  2. HTR herbal tea residue, CN no herbal tea residues, the control group, HC 30% fermented HTRs replaced, the 30% replacement group
