Fig. 2

Inferred phylogenetic relationships of Trichuris spp. from primates and other mammals based on nuclear ITS1-5.8S-ITS2 sequences, with indications on host affiliation and assignment to subgroups. Phylogeny was inferred using neighbour joining (NJ), maximum parsimony (MP) and Bayesian inference (BI) methods. The reference species Trichinella spiralis was used as the outgroup. Trichuris spp. recovered from primates were genetically divided into five subgroups (Subgroups 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5) and indicated by differently coloured rectangles. The numbers along the branches show bootstrap values resulting from different analyses in the order NJ/MP/BI; values < 50% are not shown
