Figure 3. (A) Total numbers of reported coccidioidomycosis cases, 2010–2017, in Kern County, California, and Maricopa County, Arizona.
(B) Incidence of coccidioidomycosis in Kern and Maricopa counties. Incidence can be calculated by dividing the number of cases by the
population (population numbers are available from https://www.census.gov) and then multiplying by the factor K (e.g., 100,000). Note
that even though the reported cases in Maricopa County are higher, incidence of the disease is higher in Kern County since 2013.
Figure 4. Soil sampling plan showing different soil types on the CSUB campus. The area of interest lies within the white square.
Areas of different soil types are separated by white dashed lines, and their soil unit numbers are in white dashed squares: 125
(Granoso loamy sand), 243 (Wasco sandy loam), 127 (Granoso sandy loam), 174 (Kimberlina fine sandy loam). Two lab sections
participated in this exercise. Sites where the pathogen was detected via diagnostic PCR are indicated with black dots within white
circles. Coccidioides immitis negative sites are denoted by white dots. Letters next to dots are students’ initials. This soil sampling
plan was generated using the USDA WSS database and Microsoft PowerPoint.
