Abstract

Haemaphysalis longicornis, the cattle tick or bush tick, has an extended distribution throughout Asia and the Pacific region, including China, Russia, the Republic of Korea (ROK), Japan, Australia, New Zealand, and the South Pacific islands. It is an obligate ectoparasite found commonly on medium...

Abstract

A pilot series of experiments was conducted in which cattle, sheep and goats were infected with sporozoites of a single stock of each of Theileria annulata and T. lestoquardi (syn T. hirci) from a laboratory colony of Hyalomma anatolicum anatolicum. Reciprocal cross-immunity and serological studies ...

Abstract

The authors discuss the various techniques which could be employed in Africa to detect the ability of various breeds of cattle to resist ticks. The simplest approach involves surveying in the field to detect suitable combinations of resistance and productivity and breeding from such cattle....

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

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

The basic structure and use of a general programme (TICK2) for modelling tick ecology and the epidemiology of tick-borne diseases is given. Its primary purpose is to serve as a framework in which to incorporate and test knowledge of the ecology of ticks and their livestock hosts. The model is...

Abstract

The author reviews methods of monitoring the epidemiology of tick-borne diseases in livestock in Africa, primarily from the perspective of a model maker. The following subjects are discussed: the incidence and prevalence of tick-borne diseases in host populations, the sampling methods used to...

Abstract

TICK2 is a detailed population model for 1- and 3-host ticks, with provision for modelling tick-borne diseases. The disease model can be superimposed on the tick model, and is intended to be applicable to any tick-borne disease: different diseases are characterized by different parameter values. A...

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 ...
