Seven fermentation experiments Anaerobic fermentation were conducted at diﬀerent pH (3−12). Results showed that the optimal pH was 10 for accumulation of VFAs. High-throughput sequencing High-throughput sequencing results indicated that acid and alkali treatment could inhibit Microbial community Erysipelotrichaceae_UCG-004 and norank_p_Aminicenantes, instead of promoting Pseudomonas and Tissierella at Functional shifts acidic and alkaline condition, respectively. Besides, molecular ecological networks (MENs) analysis and multi- Metabolic output variate canonical correspondence analysis (CCA) revealed that the microbial community interactions are sig- niﬁcant diﬀerent between acid
