Phylogenetic tree of bat-associated rabies cases. Taxa represent 208 rabies virus variants from 27 human rabies cases (formalin-fixed taxa removed) and 98 terrestrial mammals infected with a bat rabies virus, 60 bat samples representing 17 species, and 23 terrestrial mammal outgroup taxa. Each circle represents a case (terrestrial mammal = closed circles, human = open circles) associated with the monophyletic clade in the phylogeny to the left. Numbers at tree nodes indicate nonparametric bootst
