The book provides a comprehensive account of ticks andtick-borne diseases occurring in tropical and subtropical
areas. It begins with a complete up-to-date overview of the
systematics of the Ixodida (Ixodidae, Argasidae and
Nutalliellidae) and is followed by a review of the problem
of ticks and tick-borne diseases of domestic animals world
wide. This leads on to multi-disciplinary approaches to
planning tick and tick-borne disease control and to
contributions on calculating the economic impact of a tick
species such as Amblyomma americanum on beef production
systems. Heartwater fever (cowdriosis) and dermatophilosis
are endemic in Africa and pose a threat to the North
American mainland. The epidemiology of these two diseases is
discussed in detail as is the role of frozen vaccines to
control bovine babesiosis and anaplasmosis. The book also
includes chapters on tick transmitted zoonoses such as Lyme
borreliosis, tick typhus and ehrlichiosis. It concludes with
a review of the acaricidal treatment of tick infestation.
