Table 1 The phylogenetic diversity of Borrelia burgdorferi (s.l.) strains recorded in vertebrates or ticks based on their characterization by multilocus sequence typing (MLST). Negative MPD values and values of MPD-P near 0.01 indicate strong phylogenetic clustering of the MLST strains in the tick or vertebrate; positive MPD values and higher MPD-P values indicate weak phylogenetic clustering of the MLST strains in the tick or vertebrate

From: Nested coevolutionary networks shape the ecological relationships of ticks, hosts, and the Lyme disease bacteria of the Borrelia burgdorferi (s.l.) complex
