From: Microclimatic temperatures at Danish cattle farms, 2000–2016: quantifying the temporal and spatial variation in the transmission potential of Schmallenberg virus

Fig. 4

The annual variation in the extrinsic incubation period (EIP) of Schmallenberg virus between 2000 and 2016 at Danish cattle farms in: spring (April-May), summer (June-August), and autumn (September), assuming that vectors randomly select a resting site according to the area this habitat occupies within a 500 m radius of the farms (random resting), or that the vector chooses the warmest (maximum temperature) or the coldest (minimum temperature) available farm habitat every hour or that they rest at the nearest Danish Meteorological Institute (DMI) temperature grid point. The bottom and top of the box indicate the first and third quartiles; the band inside the box is the median. The dots outside the box are outliers
