Ticks are vectors of many pathogens that infect humans and animals worldwide. Because of global changes in climate and land-use, and the increased movement and range of human and animal hosts, ticks are now present in a wider geographic area and are being introduced to non-native areas at an unprecedented rate. Consequently, the medical and economic burdens associated with ticks are increasing globally. To mitigate the potentially catastrophic impacts of tick invasion, control and eradication efforts must be implemented immediately. The pre-identification of locations the tick may invade is considered one of the most effective ways of informing effective surveillance and control. Tick species distribution models are a useful tool for predicting the potential range of ticks based on ecological variables that impact their survival. View this paper
