The preliminary results show a strong relationship between the outbreak events and the existence of temporary and seasonal flying-fox roosting sites within a 10 km range; in contrast, very few disease outbreak incidents have a permanent roosting site in their buffer range.
The next stage of the research includes a detailed cluster analysis based on individual factors such as flying-fox types and their characteristics, vegetation types, breeding times and seasons of the outbreaks.
