    (A) Last day at which each group was at full size plotted against number of home ranges separating that group from the first group to suffer deaths. (B) Day of last full group size was not well predicted by latitude, as might be expected with spillover from a north-to-south reservoir epizootic. Assuming other reservoir epizootic trajectories did not improve fit. (C) Gorilla nest distribution during 2004 to 2005 surveys (after ZEBOV die-offs). Shading of each dot proportional to number of gorilla nests found on a 5-km survey segment. Blue line at 14.55°E longitude separates eastern from western sampling zone. Lossi Sanctuary in gray, savannas in yellow, and roads in brown. (D) Chimpanzee nest distribution in 2004 to 2005 surveys.
