Interpret alpha-diversity significance

Hello. Trying to figure out how to interpret diversity results. I do not fully understand the output for alpha-group signficance plots. What is the H value for the Kruskal-Wallis pairwise test? And is there an easier way to get value for Faith's PD or Shannon values per group other than downloading the raw table and calculating them myself? I know the program is calculating the median as well as quartiles because it is plotting them on the boxplot, but I would like to be able to report the exact numbers for each group and don't see that output anywhere. Attaching a screenshot for reference. Thank you!
