Forest Fragmentation as Cause of Bacterial Transmission among Nonhuman Primates, Humans, and Livestock, Uganda
|Bacterial population||FST (SEM)*
|Livestock||Nonhuman primates in forest fragments||Nonhuman primates in undisturbed forest|
|Nonhuman primates in forest fragments||0.102 (0.024)2||0.090 (0.021)2|
|Nonhuman primates in undisturbed forest||0.180 (0.052)3||0.151 (0.051)3||0.046 (0.013)1|
*FST values (which can vary between 0 and 1) represent short-term genetic distances between bacterial populations and were calculated from Rep-PCR data by using optimal analytical parameters (30). Standard errors were estimated from bootstrap analyses with 1,000 replicates. Each of the 6 FST values shown is statistically significantly different from the null expectation of no genetic difference between populations, based on the bootstrap analysis (all p<0.01). Different superscript numbers indicate significantly different FST values (exact probabilities <0.05).
