Abstract

: We found a south to north movement of rotavirus activity across Europe. Lower birth rates, higher winter temperatures, and higher winter rainfall were associated with variations in timing of rotavirus activity between European countries but not with temporal variations within countries. Patterns of rotavirus activity are likely to be driven by a complex interaction of population, virus, and environmental factors.<br/>
