The distribution and genetic structure of Escherichia coli in Australian vertebrates: host and geographic effects
Escherichia coli was isolated from more than 2300 non-domesticated vertebrate hosts living in Australia. E. coli was most prevalent in mammals, less prevalent in birds and uncommon in fish, frogs and reptiles. Mammals were unlikely to harbour E. coli if they lived in regions with a desert climate and less likely to have E. coli if they lived in the tropics than if they lived in semi-arid or temperate regions. In mammals, the likelihood of isolating E. coli from an individual depended on thedoi:10.1099/mic.0.26486-0 pmid:14663089 fatcat:erdf7m3xnvbtrmny7ilcgeuxey
