1 of the first complex epidemiological studies on the prevalence of Babesia, Bartonella, and A. schoenbuchensis infections in roe deer in Poland is presented and two different genetic variants of A. phagocytophilum, zoonotic and nonzoonotic, are widely distributed.
Occurrence of demodex spp. (Acari, Demodecidae) in the striped field mouse Apodemus agrarius (Rodentia, Muridae) in Poland.
The hair follicle mites (Acari, Demodecidae) are obligatory and specific parasites of mammals, important in human and veterinary medicine, and 11 species (and 3 subspecies) were discovered from 10 species of native rodents.
Analysis of the reasons for differences in topical specificity among various species of tick (Acari, Ixodidae) infesting European bison
Ticks do, however, exhibit distinct topical specificity during feeding, and in the case of D. reticulatus a significant factor is the correlation between the length of the gnathosoma and the skin thickness of the host, which determines the availability of the circulatory vessels.
