Distribution of goat-breeding areas in France and origin of mycoplasmal cultures sent to AFSSA for identification. The color code of each region (a group of departments delineated by a white line) indicates the number of goats present in this region 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 96 of the 611 isolates collected are not represented on the map because the indicated origin was ambiguous and one because it originated from an overseas French department.
