Abstract

An account is given of a deterministic computer model (T3HOST) which models changes in populations of Rhipicephalus appendiculatus induced by ecological factors. All rates of change are predicted from climatic values and density-dependent relationships. The workings of T3HOST are described with...

Abstract

A simple genetic model was used to explore the potential roles of hybrid sterility and ecological competitiveness in the geographic displacement of 1 species of ixodid tick by another. Assortative mating is shown to be important in determining whether the more competitive colonizing species becomes ...

Abstract

Information is given on how the population model, T3HOST, can be used as an aid to pest management in assessing the effects of host resistance, pasture spelling, game animals and strategic dipping on the numbers of Rhipicephalus appendiculatus infesting cattle in Africa. The cost effectiveness of...

Abstract

Information is provided on the use of computer models as an aid in solving practical problems associated with reducing the adverse effects of ticks and tick-borne diseases on animal productivity in Africa. Population models already in use in Australia against Boophilus microplus are mentioned, such ...

Abstract

The author discusses the type of ecological data required to model factors affecting the parasitic phase of ticks on livestock, such as the time spent on the host, the amount of blood ingested, the amount and type of foreign material introduced into the host (including tick-borne diseases) and the...

Abstract

Information is given on the data required to use the T3HOST model to analyse control strategies for cost effective pest management of ticks, especially Rhipicephalus appendiculatus in Africa. The roles of host resistance, vaccination, dipping and animal density and movements are discussed.

Abstract

Information is given on the use of the CLIMEX model in the management of ticks (Rhipicephalus appendiculatus, Boophilus microplus and Amblyomma variegatum) and tick-borne diseases in Africa, especially Kenya and Zambia. Its specific use in the analysis of the value of quarantine, the prediction of...
