Anthrax seroprevalence patterns in carnivores, by age, Tanzania, 1996–2009. Lions (A) in Serengeti and domestic dogs (B) in agropastoralist regions where no outbreaks were detected (black line), in pastoralist regions where repeated outbreaks were detected (red line), and in an agropastoralist village where no outbreaks were reported but serologic surveys indicated previous exposure (blue line). Error bars indicate 95% confidence intervals for age seroprevalence in lions and dogs, but are juxtap

Error bars indicate 95% confidence intervals for age seroprevalence in lions and dogs, but are juxtaposed for dogs to improve readability. Sample sizes used to calculate seroprevalences are indicated.
