Description

A zoonosis disease can be transmitted to humans from animals. The ecological relationships found to exist between tick vectors and pathogens in their zootic cycle can profoundly influence these patterns of transmission and disease. This book examines the ecological parameters affecting the conservation and regulation of tick-borne zoonoses as well as the geographic and seasonal distributions of those infections. Topics covered include population ecology of tick vectors, vector-host pathogen relationships, geographic dissemination and dynamics and management of tick-borne zoonoses, together with the dynamic associations which affect domestic and animal health.show more

Review quote

a manifest underlining of the importance of basic and applied ecological research for human health in a phase when other disciplines seem to receive much more attention by the public ... the collection of topics is very convincing and the quality of all chapters is high or even very high ... It contains exciting information and is truly a milestone in the field of ecology of tick-borne diseases. To read this book is a must for researchers and teachers in medical entomology, ecological parasitology, and related disciplines. I am also sure that public health workers, microbiologists as welll as veterinarians and physicians involved in vector-borne diseases will derive a major benefit from reading this book ... also excellent reading matter for graduate students because it conveys an idea about how complex ecological problemns can be and how we can adequately investigate them. * Olaf Kahl, Bulletin of Entomological Research (1997) 87 * the collection of topics is very convincing and the quality of all chapters is high or even very high ... each chapter is rather complete and well readable on its own ...

I can without hesitation recommend it, not only to tick scientists but to anyone interested in ecological parasitology. * Thomas G.T. Jaenson, Uppsala University, Parasitology Today, vol. 12, no. 6, 1996 * a wealth of information for workers researching into the relationship between ticks and the many pathogens they transmit ... a valuable addition to institutional libraries * Anne Baker, The Natural History Museum, Society for General Microbiology Quarterly, August 1996 * very up-to-date, informative ... and useful for those who are interested in zoonoses harmful to human and animal health ... The quality of this edition is very high ... we consider this book to be of considerable value for both institutional and personal libraries. * European Journal of Entomology, 1996 *show more
