Figure 3

Parasites from the main Leucocytozoon lineages infecting great tits at three altitudes in western Switzerland. Proportion (relative to each other) of haemosporidian parasites belonging to the three most abundant Leucocytozoon lineages recorded at a low, intermediate and high altitudinal study site in wild, breeding great tits (Parus major). Purple portions represent parasites from lineage PARUS4, brown portions represent individuals from PARUS19 and yellow portions represent PARUS22 parasites.
