Table 6 Host distributions within ecotypes

From: Circulation of four Anaplasma phagocytophilum ecotypes in Europe

Hosts (17) Ecotype I Ecotype II Ecotype III Ecotype IV
Sample All Part All Part All Part All Part
Size 347 103 163 52 30 3 8 6

  1. The expected and observed host range of the four ecotypes were calculated for the European samples (All) and Dutch and Belgium samples (Part). Observed: observed number of distinct host species. Expected: expected number of distinct host species given the sample size. Bold italic numerals indicate p-value < 0.025, hence observed host-species richness is significantly less than expectation from the ecotype I. Expected species richness and its p-value were computed using EstimateS (Version 9, R. K. Colwell,
