Abstract

Progress in research on the control of cattle ticks [Boophilus microplus (Can.)] and tick fever (caused by Babesia and transmitted by the ticks) in Queensland is reviewed. It has been shown that an increase in temperature produces a form of the pathogen that infects cattle, whereas a decrease...
