Distribution of bovine breeding areas in France and origin of mycoplasmal cultures sent to AFSSA for identification. The color code of each department indicates the number of bovines present in this department in 2008 (Agrest 2008, http://agreste.agriculture.gouv.fr webcite). The yellow circles indicate the number of mycoplasmal cultures originating from each department over the 2003-2008 period. Note that 63 of the 1061 cultures collected are not represented on the map because the indicated origin was ambiguous.
