The ecological relationships found to exist between tick vectors and pathogens in their zootic cycle can profoundly influence patterns of transmission and disease for humans and domestic animals. This book examines the ecological parameters affecting the conservation and regulation oftick-borne zoonoses as well as the geographic and seasonal distributions of those infections. Written by an eminent authority on the subject, the book will be sought after by students and researchers in ecology, invertebrate zoology, parasitology, entomology, public health, and epidemiology.

Editorial Reviews

"Tick-borne zoonotic diseases are characterized by an intricate set of ecological relationships between pathogen, tick vector, vertebrate hosts, and humans, which largely determines the prevalence, as well as spatial and temporal dynamics of the diseases. This book makes it abundantly clearthat effective diagnosis, treatment and prevention require an understanding of the ecological dynamics of tick-borne diseases." -- Ecology
