  1. PNG: Papua New Guinea. Pak/Afg: Pakistan/Afghanistan. South A: South America. The number (and percentage) of samples successfully amplified for each MS locus and for the two loci combined are shown in every survey. Multiplicty of infection (MOI) is calculated by averaging the number of alleles detected in the total number of PCR positive samples. Data not available are indicated by “---”. Reference marked as * is this study.
