Special Issue "Tick Surveillance and Tick-borne Diseases"
A special issue of Insects (ISSN 2075-4450).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 May 2019).
Interests: molecular ecology; wildlife and vector-borne disease ecology; spatial ecology; wildlife biology
Over the last 20 years, tick-borne pathogens have been increasingly recognized as a threat to humans, domestic animals and wildlife. At the same time, an increasing number of non-native ticks with the potential to carry exotic pathogens have been observed. The discovery of reoccuring, emerging or novel pathogens and their tick vectors is possible due to surveillance programs which are essential for timely and effective responses. This Special Issue covers advances in surveillance techniques and theory, results of surveillance efforts and models that use surveillance data on tick-borne pathogens and the ticks that carry them.
