Plasmodium phylogenetic tree with bootstrap values (> 50%) displayed. Nodal support values from maximum likelihood analysis are displayed above branches and those from Bayesian analysis are below. Letters identify the clade (n = 9) with clade infection prevalence in brackets (n = 150). Weaver species infected are Ploceus capensis (Cape Weaver), Ploceus velatus (Southern Masked Weaver), Euplectes orix (Southern Red Bishop) and Euplectes capensis (Yellow Bishop). Matching or closely related lineages from Genbank are also displayed in the tree.
