Descripción

Language: English. Brand new Book. This is a comprehensive work summarizing the current state of knowledge of the biology of the hard ticks (Acari: Ixodidae) of Southern Africa (South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Swaziland, Lesotho and Maputo Province, Mozambique). It provides an overview of the history of tick research in Southern Africa and the evolution of our knowledge of the ticks' distribution and biology, as well as the methods used to determine tick distribution, abundance and host preference. The morphologies of most of the tick species known to occur in Southern Africa are described and illustrated, and their distributions are described and mapped in relation to the biomes of the region. The known hosts for each tick species are listed, and the tick's host preferences are discussed. Information on most species life cycle in the laboratory and the field, and their seasonal occurrence, is summarized. The diseases of animals and humans transmitted or caused by each tick species are summarized in relation to tick ecology. Aspects of the biology of the major hosts relevant to tick infestations are described, and extensive tick/host and host/tick lists are provided for each country.

Sinopsis:

THIS IS A COMPREHENSIVE WORK SUMMARIZING THE CURRENT STATE OF KNOWLEDGE OF THE BIOLOGY OF THE HARD TICKS (ACARI: IXODIDAE) OF SOUTHERN AFRICA (SOUTH AFRICA, NAMIBIA, BOTSWANA, SWAZILAND, LESOTHO AND MAPUTO PROVINCE, MOZAMBIQUE). IT PROVIDES AN OVERVIEW OF THE HISTORY OF TICK RESEARCH IN SOUTHERN AFRICA AND THE EVOLUTION OF OUR KNOWLEDGE OF THE TICKS’ DISTRIBUTION AND BIOLOGY, AS WELL AS THE METHODS USED TO DETERMINE TICK DISTRIBUTION, ABUNDANCE AND HOST PREFERENCE. THE MORPHOLOGIES OF MOST OF THE TICK SPECIES KNOWN TO OCCUR IN SOUTHERN AFRICA ARE DESCRIBED AND ILLUSTRATED, AND THEIR DISTRIBUTIONS ARE DESCRIBED AND MAPPED IN RELATION TO THE BIOMES OF THE REGION. THE KNOWN HOSTS FOR EACH TICK SPECIES ARE LISTED, AND THE TICK’S HOST PREFERENCES ARE DISCUSSED. INFORMATION ON MOST SPECIES LIFE CYCLE IN THE LABORATORY AND THE FIELD, AND THEIR SEASONAL OCCURRENCE, IS SUMMARIZED. THE DISEASES OF ANIMALS AND HUMANS TRANSMITTED OR CAUSED BY EACH TICK SPECIES ARE SUMMARIZED IN RELATION TO TICK ECOLOGY. ASPECTS OF THE BIOLOGY OF THE MAJOR HOSTS RELEVANT TO TICK INFESTATIONS ARE DESCRIBED, AND EXTENSIVE TICK/HOST AND HOST/TICK LISTS ARE PROVIDED FOR EACH COUNTRY

Críticas:

“I would thoroughly recommend this book to researchers, practicing veterinarians and libraries, as it is a remarkable source of scientific reference and will remain so for many years. The book is a culmination of years of research and tick identifications by most of the authors and also draw on contributions of several other researchers in the region. The quality, breadth and depth of the work makes it a “One-stop Shop” for information on the identification, biology and of course the history of ticks from southern Africa. The figures and tables are clear and of high quality.” (Sonja Matthee, Conservation Ecology and Entomology, Stellenbosch University, Stellenbosch, South Africa)
