Abstract

On introduction to Australia, European rabbit fleas spread myxomatosis among young wild rabbits during winter; recruitment into the adult rabbit population was strongly reduced. Nonetheless, the reasons behind the high efficacy of flea-borne myxomatosis remain poorly understood. A 17-year data set...

Abstract

Long-term benefits of introducing European rabbit fleas to Australia as vectors of myxomatosis have not been evaluated. To address this deficit, data on pasture plant biomass from a 21-year study in semi-arid South Australia was reviewed. A plant biomass index was derived from photographed quadrats ...

AbstractFull Text

Myxomatosis is a highly infectious viral disease of rabbits. Myxoma virus (MYXV) is not pathogenic to other animal species except for rabbits and hares. In Poland, outbreaks of myxomatosis mainly occur on small-scale size rabbit farms in which specific immunoprophylaxis is not carried out. A...

Abstract

Myxomatosis is one of the most important infectious diseases of rabbits. Large economic losses caused by myxomatosis require the development of effective surveillance and monitoring programs. These programs must have an active and passive surveillance based on the best mix of diagnostic methods. In ...

Abstract

Myxomatosis is a viral disease that affects European rabbits (Oryctolagus cuniculus) worldwide. In Spain, populations of wild rabbits drastically decreased in the 1950s after the first outbreak of myxomatosis.
