• Monitoring of tick vectors and the pathogens they transmit, within the scope of epidemiological surveillance, is an important tool for better prevention and control of tick-borne diseases. (umk.pl)
  • What is the Risk for Exposure to Vector-Borne Pathogens in United States National Parks? (cdc.gov)
  • We assessed the current state of knowledge for risk of exposure to vector-borne pathogens in national parks through a review of relevant literature, including internal National Park Service documents and organismal databases. (cdc.gov)
  • The planet's inhabitants, called "Spiders" by the humans for their resemblance to arachnids, have reached a stage of technological development very similar to that of Earth's humans in the early 20th century, although humans believe that they may once have been capable of space travel.

  • Dermacentor marginatus constitutes the most important vector and wild boar (Sus scrofa) is the main wild host in our area. (nih.gov)
  • In support of this theory, all stages of the tick vector Ornithodoros hermsi fed successfully on birds in the laboratory and advanced in their life cycle. (cdc.gov)
  • These tiny arachnids play many ecological roles including acting as vectors of disease, vital players in soil formation, and important agents of biological control. (indigo.ca)
  • Thus, EpiCenter could be used to monitor disease vector populations during extraordinary circumstances in areas where the capacity for traditional trapping methods is not maintained. (hmsinc.com)
  • Transmission success of the malaria parasite Plasmodium mexicanum into its vector: role of gametocyte density and sex ratio. (naver.com)
  • This study provides evidence of transovarial and transstadial transmission of the parasite within Ixodes ricinus, which suggests that this tick could be a vector and reservoir of EU1. (cdc.gov)
