Fig. 3

The extrinsic incubation period (EIP) of Schmallenberg virus on Danish cattle farms. The figure illustrates the 17-year average EIP for spring (April 1st - May 31st), summer (June 1st - August 31st), and autumn (September 1st - September 30th), assuming that vectors either randomly select a resting site according to the area this habitat occupies within a 500 m radius of the farms (random resting-site), or the warmest (hourly maximum temperature) or coldest (hourly minimum temperature) available farm habitat each hour, or that they rest at the nearest DMI temperature grid point (DMI)
