In South Africa, Babesia bovis is transmitted only by Boophilus microplus (Can.), but Babesia bigemina is transmitted by both Boophilus microplus and B. decoloratus (Koch), the latter being the more widespread there of the 2 tick species. Babesia bigemina causes heavy economic losses of cattle in...

Abstract

It is reported in this review, which includes some previously unpublished material, that babesiosis is the cause of important economic losses in cattle in South Africa and involves most areas with an annual rainfall of more than 400 mm. Both Babesia bigemina and B. bovis are present, and both are...

Abstract

The eastern plains of Colombia have traditionally been used for extensive cattle ranching and form a major cattle-producing area in the country. A survey conducted to determine the prevalence and distribution of anaplasmosis, babesiosis and tick vectors across a large region of the eastern plains...

Abstract

Bos indicus-crossbred calves (groups of 180 and 124) exposed to natural Babesia bovis infection in wet and dry tropical environments in northern Queensland, Australia, were tested for antibodies using the indirect haemagglutination (IHA) test. There was evidence of maternal antibodies suggesting...

Animal populations in French Polynesia are estimated at 9 000 cattle kept semi-intensively (of which 750 are dairy on intensive pasture), 16 000 pigs, 11 000 laying hens, 50 000 chickens, 4 000 feral sheep and goats, 30 000-40 000 dogs and cats, and a few horses. The results of a two-year survey of ...

Abstract

In 2 of 3 experiments, Boophilus microplus larvae infected with Babesia bigemina were released in a 2 to 4 g batch onto an artificially confined area (A) of a donor calf. A 2 g batch of uninfected larvae was released onto a confined area (B) on the other side of the calf. In experiment 1, the calf...

Abstract

A species of Babesia was recently observed in Hyalomma marginatum rufipes Koch from cattle in South Africa and found to be transmissible to bovines. Further observations were carried out on this parasite, and a study was made of the morphology of stages in erythrocytes and tick haemolymph. Apart...

Abstract

It is generally accepted that Boophilus microplus (Can.) is the principal vector of Babesia and Anaplasma in Uruguay. The climate of the country makes it a marginal area for the development of this tick, and its bionomics are not regulated by a fixed pattern. Studies on the distribution and...
