spotted fever group rickettsia in ticks from southeastern spain natural parks.during an 8-years study, we collected from vegetation or domestic and wild mammals 1246 ticks (624 males, 511 females and 111 nymphs) belonging to 13 species in jaen province (andalusia) and we analyzed these ticks by pcr and sequencing for the presence of rickettsiae. specific rickettsiae dna was detected in 243 (19.5%) of the ticks tested. sequence analysis of amplicons of glta, ompa and ompb genes revealed that ixodes ricinus were infected with r. monacensis, including strain irs3, and r. hel ...200818677442
ectoparasites of the endangered iberian lynx lynx pardinus and sympatric wild and domestic carnivores in spain.ectoparasites can cause important skin disorders in animals and can also transmit pathogens. the iberian lynx lynx pardinus has been stated to be the most endangered felid in the world and such vector-borne pathogens may threaten its survival. we surveyed 98 wild carnivores (26 iberian lynxes, 34 red foxes vulpes vulpes, 24 egyptian mongooses herpestes ichneumon, 11 common genets genetta genetta, two eurasian badgers meles meles, one polecat mustela putorius) and 75 domestic but free-ranging car ...200717897365
spotted fever group rickettsia in brown dog ticks rhipicephalus sanguineus in southwestern spain.a total of 2,229 adults ticks (1,428 males and 801 females) belonging to the brown dog tick, rhipicephalus sanguineus latreille, 1806, collected from dogs in seville province (andalusia), distributed in 500 lots ranging from one to eight specimens per lot, were examined for the presence of rickettsiae by molecular techniques. specific rickettsiae dna were detected in 90 lots (18%) of ticks tested. sequence analysis of amplicons revealed that r. sanguineus ticks were infected exclusively with ric ...200818340465
[population dynamics of rhipicephalus pusillus gil collado, 1938 (acarina, ixodidae) in 1986-1987 in south-eastern spain: modelling of the biological cycle].the evolution of the rhipicephalus pusillus population, a parasite of the european wild rabbit, oryctolagus cuniculus, is studied in a locality of the province of granada (spain), in 1986-1987. the moving average technique was applied to the sampling data (358 hosts), for each stage of the postembryonic cycle. this technique permitted us, together with the habitual usage of the statistics, to understand in a more complete manner, the evolution of daily changes which affect the average number of ...19892596808
ixodid ticks parasitizing iberian red deer (cervus elaphus hispanicus) and european wild boar (sus scrofa) from spain: geographical and temporal distribution.commercial hunting of spanish wild ungulates has made them an important economic resource. wild ungulates may have an important role in the maintenance of ixodid tick populations, and also as reservoirs of pathogens. we studied the ixodid ticks that parasitize iberian red deer and european wild boar from spain. ixodid ticks (n=6,336) were collected from 431 iberian red deer and 142 wild boar in different regions of spain. we found 10 different ixodid tick species parasitizing iberian red deer, m ...200616675125
