Abstract

Babesia spp. are tick-transmitted haemoparasites causing tick fever in cattle. In Australia, economic losses to the cattle industry from tick fever are estimated at AUD$26 Million per annum. If animals recover from these infections, they become immune carriers. Here we describe a novel multiplex...

Abstract

This study was conducted to compare the features of farms on which the exposure of young cattle to tick fever organisms is sufficient to ensure that immunity is high and the risk of clinical disease is low (endemic stability) with those of farms on which exposure is insufficient to induce...

Abstract

For more than 100 years, 'tick fever' (Babesia bovis, B. bigemina and Anaplasma marginale) and B. microplus have caused tremendous financial loss to cattle producers around the world. Since Australia became infected with the disease and infested with its tick vector in the mid-19th century, a great ...

Abstract

The innate resistance of naive cattle, cattle × zebu and zebu to virulent B. bovis, B. bigemina and A. marginale was investigated. Groups of 10, pure zebu, F1 zebu cross (1/2 zebu), zebu cross (1/4 zebu) and pure cattle steers were infected with virulent B. bovis, B. bigemina and A. marginale....

Abstract

This book provides a history in Australia of 4 parasites of cattle, Babesia bovis, B. bigemina and Anaplasma marginale (together causing 'tick fever'), and their vector Boophilus microplus. The majority of the research conducted to combat them since their introduction to Australia during the 19th...

Tick fever and the cattle tick in Australia 1829-1996., 1998, pp xxiv + 540 pp.
Abstract

A computer model was developed to simulate the processes involved in transmission of the cattle fever parasites Babesia bovis and B. bigemina between cattle and Boophilus ticks. The model of Babesia transmission was combined with a dynamic life history model for population dynamics of the vectors ...

Abstract

In Australia cattle were introduced by the Europeans from the Cape of Good Hope. Ticks and tick fever were introduced from Indonesia in 1872. Now the only transmitting tick in Australia is Boophilus microplus and the pathogenic organisms are Babesia bigemina, B. argentina and Anaplasma marginale....
