Figure 2

Phylogeography of Francisella tularensis (F.t.) subsp. holarctica. The global distribution of different clades (indicated by colored stars, circles, and circle sections) and their phylogenetic relationships (tree) are shown as described (6,7,11). Stars indicate sequenced reference strains. The phylogenetic positions of the 10 isolates from China (boxes on tree) and their sites of isolation (circles within China) are indicated. The exact lineage of strain 410105 (black circle) was not determined.
