  1. Some communities consist of a single species and these are listed together under community number “Ind.” to reduce the size of the table. The numbers in brackets indicate the community index in the induced graph. Note the green turtle in community 25 appears to be out of place with the other smaller species in the same community but they all tend to feed on similar species
