Host Phylogeny Determines Viral Persistence and Replication in Novel Hosts

Figure 2

The effect of the genetic distance of a novel host from the natural host on the titre of three sigma viruses 15 days after injection.

The estimates of viral titre have been corrected for phylogenetic effects and are plotted on a log2 scale. Genetic distance is relative to the distance from root to tip (root to tip equals 1). Trend line is for illustrative purposes.
