A zoonosis disease can be transmitted to humans from animals. The ecological relationships found to exist between tick vectors and pathogens in their zootic cycle can profoundly influence these patterns of transmission and disease. This book examines the ecological parameters affecting the conservation and regulation of tick-borne zoonoses as well as the geographic and seasonal distributions of those infections. Topics covered include population ecology of tick vectors, vector-host pathogen relationships, geographic dissemination and dynamics and management of tick-borne zoonoses, together with the dynamic associations which affect domestic and animal health.

"Tick-borne zoonotic diseases are characterized by an intricate set of ecological relationships between pathogen, tick vector, vertebrate hosts, and humans, which largely determines the prevalence, as well as spatial and temporal dynamics of the diseases. This book makes it abundantly clear that effective diagnosis, treatment and prevention require an understanding of the ecological dynamics of tick-borne diseases." -- Ecology "Tick-borne zoonotic diseases are characterized by an intricate set of ecological relationships between pathogen, tick vector, vertebrate hosts, and humans, which largely determines the prevalence, as well as spatial and temporal dynamics of the diseases.
