Histogram of the apparent seroprevalences (in %) according to age classes. The young class (juveniles and subadults, ≤ 60 kg) is represented in deep blue and the adult class in light blue. The vertical dotted lines over the bars represent the upper limit of the corresponding 95% confidence intervals. Seroprevalence data are given for areas pooled according to their mange status (“confirmed cases”, i.e., Sarcoptes scabiei was identified in skin samples; and “no reported cases”). The two areas with suspected but unconfirmed cases were excluded from the graph (National Domain of Chambord in France: likely cases, high apparent seroprevalence, 8 seropositive samples; Thurgau in Switzerland: doubtful cases, low apparent seroprevalence, 2 seropositive samples)
