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

Fig. 7

The daily average extrinsic incubation period (EIP) of all cattle farms for the period 2000–2016 (April 1st - September 30th). The estimated EIP using random resting-site temperature (blue line) showed a shorter virus development period compared to the Danish Meteorological Institute (DMI) temperature (red line). Using estimated maximum and minimum hourly temperatures at Danish cattle farms generated two extreme scenarios of EIP (purple and cyan lines). The observed microclimatic temperature from 2015 only showed real annual variation in EIP for Schmallenberg virus for this specific year (dotted line). The observed field data from Strødam were available from May 1st, 2015 to September 1st, 2015
