Figure. . . Maximum-likelihood phylogenetic tree of Leptospira spp.16s rDNA in bats from Madagascar and the Union of the Comoros. The dendrogram was constructed with a fragment of 641 bp, with the TIMef+I+G substitution model, and with 1,000 replications. Only bootstrap supports >70% are shown (circles). The precise geographic information of the sampled bats can be accessed through the GenBank accession numbers indicated in parentheses at branch tips. Host bat species for the sequences generated in this study are shown in boldface. Scale bar indicates number of nucleotide substitutions per site.
