The commonest mode of transmission of the rabies virus is by injection of infected saliva via a bite wound. Carnivores and some bats have dentition and behaviour that adapt them to transmission of the virus. Comparison is made between the multivector community of E Canada with the single vector community of C Europe. Another ecological distinction is between different populations of the same vector, illustrated by reference to red fox Vulpes vulpes. The epizootiology reflects the different ecological circumstances, and thus behaviour, of populations of vectors. -P.J.Jarvis
