Comments P.4 left column bottom paragraph: "Quantitative PCR (Table 2) showed a higher ruminal concentration of bacteria (P < 0.001) and protozoa (P = 0.011) in sheep fed with the PAS (pasture) than with the CON (concentrate) diet. On the contrary the CON diet promoted a higher concentration of anaerobic fungi per mg of DM (P = 0.027)."
