ixodes scapularis (acari: ixodidae) in kansas: a new distribution record.the blacklegged tick, ixodes scapularis say, previously known to occur only in the extreme southeastern corner of kansas, has been collected in douglas and jefferson counties in the northeast. the new collections extend the northern range of this species in kansas by approximately 240 km. the role of i. scapularis as a vector of the lyme borreliosis spirochete, borrelia burgdorferi, makes this a noteworthy extension of its known range. the proximity of these new collection sites to large centers ...19911770524
serologic survey for selected infectious disease agents in swift and kit foxes from the western united states.a serologic survey of swift fox (vulpes velox) and kit fox (v. macrotis) from the western usa was conducted for 12 infectious diseases. samples from swift fox were collected between 1987 and 1992 from colorado (n = 44), kansas (n = 10), and wyoming (n = 9). samples from kit fox were collected in california (n = 86), new mexico (n = 18), utah (n = 9), and arizona (n = 6). overall antibody prevalence rates were 33 of 110 (30%) for canine parvovirus (cpv), 9 of 72 (13%) for canine distemper virus ( ...200011085448
the geographic distribution of ixodes scapularis (acari: ixodidae) revisited: the importance of assumptions about error balance.the black-legged tick, ixodes scapularis say, is the primary vector of borrelia burgdorferi, a spirochete that causes lyme disease, in eastern north america. lyme disease risk has generally been considered to be focused in the northeast and the northern midwest in the united states, yet the distribution of the vector extends considerably more broadly. a recent analysis of the distribution of the species using ecological niche modeling approaches painted an odd biogeographic picture, in which the ...201728591858
