  1. European samples (All) and Dutch and Belgian samples (Part) are divided in the four ecotypes, which are derived from Figure 1. European samples included the Dutch and Belgian samples. Asterisks* indicate that the A. phagocytophilum samples were (partially) derived from ticks feeding on these hosts (Table 3). The most numerous ecotype in bold numerals indicate significant deviations from the hypotheses that ecotypes are evenly represented in that host species (P < 0.05).
