Abstract

The haematozoa have limited animal production in tropical regions, the climatic characteristics in tropical regions provide ecological niches for the development of arthropods which are vectors of several species of the genres as Babesia, Anaplasma and Trypanosoma. The haematozoa produce direct and ...

AbstractFull Text

Bovine trypanosomiasis is a hemoparasitic disease transmitted in Latin America mainly by biting flies of the family Tabanidae. The study aimed to evaluate infection by Trypanosoma vivax and Trypanosoma evansi in cattle specialized in milk production on a farm and their potential vectors. A direct...
