Continent–island model of genetic relationships between environmental and clinical populations of Aspergillus fumigatus. Crosses (+) represent susceptible strains while other signs represent resistant strains with a diversity of resistance mechanisms. Double arrow thick line is indicative of equal gene flow in either direction, while the thick single arrow line represents a predominantly one-way gene flow.
