Maximum clade credibility tree for Rickettsia spp. detected in seabird ticks (Amblyomma loculosum and Carios capensis) of the western Indian Ocean as determined on the basis of a 913-bp fragment of the Rickettsia gltA gene. The nucleotide substitution model was selected by using the jModelTest 2.1.2 tool (https://code.google.com/p/jmodeltest2/), and Bayesian analyses were performed using MrBayes 3.1.2 (http://mrbayes.sourceforge.net/), with chain lengths of 2 million generations sampled every 1,
