CABI Book Chapter Info
Cover for Fleas, ticks and mites.

This book chapter discusses fleas, ticks, and mites. Fleas are insects with six legs, three body regions, and antennae on the head; whereas ticks and mites are arachnids with eight legs in the adult stage, two body regions, and lack antennae. All three groups are important transmitters of disease...

Cover for How to model the impact of climate change on vector-borne diseases?

This expert opinion provides an overview of mathematical models that have been used to assess the impact of climate change on ticks and tick-borne diseases, ways forward in terms of improving models for the recent context and broad guidelines for conducting future climate change risk assessment.

Cover for Challenges of modelling and projecting tick distributions.

To produce temporal projections of tick distributions, two inputs are needed: present and projected. This may seem to be an unnecessary truism, but the stipulation introduces a number of challenges. This expert opinion looks at the practicalities of modelling both distributions and sets out what...

Cover for Considerations for predicting climate change implications on future spatial distribution ranges of ticks.

This chapter focuses on spatial distribution models (SDMs) that are essential to producing reliable models of tick distributions, both in the present time and in the future, under climate change scenarios. It highlights the opinion that careful consideration of the methods is necessary in building...

Cover for Climate influence on tick neurobiology.

This expert opinion provides a short view of how climate change may impact the tick nervous system and its responses that enhance the tick's biological fitness. Herein, the aim is to primarily focus this work at the level of tick neural/sensory systems and discuss the potential effects of...

Cover for The impact of climate change on tick host-seeking behaviour.

This expert opinion focuses on the abiotic stimuli that are being impacted by climate change and in turn affect questing or host-seeking behaviour in ticks. This is important for understanding the effects of climate change on ticks and tick-borne diseases.

Cover for Expected transitions in ticks and their heritable endosymbionts under environmental changes.

Within arthropods, ticks harbour among the highest diversity of heritable endosymbionts reported so far, encompassing at least ten different bacterial genera. While the function of these heritable endosymbionts has not been fully determined yet, they have the potential to deeply influence the...
