tick-borne bacteria in mouflons and their ectoparasites in cyprus.the cypriot mouflon (ovis orientalis ophion), a once almost extirpated species of wild sheep, is under strict surveillance because it can be threatened by likely transmission of pathogenic bacteria, such as anaplasma spp., rickettsia spp., and coxiella burnetii, primarily from domestic ungulates. we collected 77 blood samples from cypriot mouflons and 663 of their ectoparasites (rhipicephalus turanicus, rhipicephalus sanguineus, rhipicephalus bursa, hyalomma anatolicum excavatum, hyalomma margin ...201121441182
coxiella burnetii in wildlife and ticks in an endemic area.ticks are considered to be a natural reservoir of coxiella burnetii and are responsible for the spread of infection in wild animals and for the transmission to domestic animals. more than 40 tick species are naturally infected with c. burnetii. in cyprus, few studies have been carried out on the distribution and incidence of c. burnetii infection in wildlife and the threat that infected wild animals pose to humans and domestic animals remains uncertain.201425163752
