Distribution of Plasmodium falciparum and Plasmodium vivax parasite densities in Sahelo-Saharan and Saharan zones in Mauritania (2011 and 2013). Violin plot shows the probability density of parasitaemia. The superimposed box plot shows the median, interquartile range, and upper and lower extremes (whiskers). Each circle represents the logarithmic value of individual parasitaemia. shLshR, P. falciparum in the Sahelo-Saharan zone; shR, P. vivax in the Saharan zone. Mood’s comparison of medians was significant between 2011 and 2013 in the Sahelo-Saharan zone. Comparison of medians was not done in 2012 and in the Sahelian zone due to the small number of malaria-positive samples
