Abstract

The relative resistance to tick (Amblyomma, Rhipicephalus and Hyalomma) infestation of zebu (Bos indicus) and crossbred (B. indicus × B. taurus) cattle was investigated. Zebu breeds, all belonging to the Tanganyika shorthorn zebu (TSZ) group, were Meru, Mbulu and Iringa Red as well as Boran....

Abstract

Recent studies have confirmed that Bos indicus [zebu] cattle breeds such as the Orma Boran and Masai zebu possess a degree of trypanotolerance which could be exploited economically by their introduction into tsetse-infested areas where other susceptible breeds cannot survive. However, in most areas ...

Abstract

The ability of rabbits, goats and cattle to acquire immunity to A. variegatum and R. appendiculatus was studied under laboratory and field conditions. Rabbits were successfully immunized with crude salivary gland extract (SGE) and midgut extract (ME) obtained from flat or partly fed females of R....

Abstract

Theileria mutans was originally described from South Africa. Rhipicephalus appendiculatus Neum. is regarded as a vector in South Africa, and it was until recently assumed that this was also true of the parasite considered to be T. mutans in East Africa. However, it was recently shown that the East...

Abstract

In studies on bovine theileriae in Zimbabwe, Rhipicephalus zambeziensis Walker, Norval & Corwin was shown experimentally to transmit Theileria parva parva from nymph to adult, and T. lawrencei (parva lawrencei), T. parva bovis and T. taurotragi from larva to nymph and nymph to adult. In a...
