Geographic distribution of rabies virus isolates in the Brazilian states of Paraíba and Pernambuco. (a) Map of Brazil indicating location of states pertinent to this study. State abbreviations are as follows: PB, Paraíba; PE Pernambuco; GO, Goiás; SP, São Paulo; RJ, Rio de Janeiro; MT, Mato Grosso; TO, Tocantins; MA, Maranhão; PA, Pará; MS, Mato Grosso do Sul. (b, c) Detailed geographic distribution of livestock isolates classified as genetic variants in the states of PB (b) and PE (c). The two symbols (triangle and star) correspond to the new sub-lineage and previously reported lineage, respectively, as used in Figure 1. Samples for which the geographic origin and the genetic variant are identical are illustrated using the same symbol. Brazilian maps were obtained from Brasil em Relevo - Embrapa Monitoramento por Satélite http://www.relevobr.cnpm.embrapa.br/.
