Habitat factors related to wild rabbit conservation in an agricultural landscape
Populations of European wild rabbit (Oryctolagus cuniculus) have been decreasing since the 1950s. Changes in agricultural practices have been suggested as reasons for their decline in MediterraneanExpand
Modelling the distributions and spatial coincidence of bluetongue vectors Culicoides imicola and the Culicoides obsoletus group throughout the Iberian peninsula
Abstract Data obtained by a Spanish national surveillance programme in 2005 were used to develop climatic models for predictions of the distribution of the bluetongue virus (BTV) vectors CulicoidesExpand
A Broad Assessment of Factors Determining Culicoides imicola Abundance: Modelling the Present and Forecasting Its Future in Climate Change Scenarios
Bluetongue (BT) is still present in Europe and the introduction of new serotypes from endemic areas in the African continent is a possible threat. Culicoides imicola remains one of the most relevantExpand
Fleas parasitizing domestic dogs in Spain.
In addition to their importance to veterinary clinical practice as ectoparasites, fleas of domestic dogs are of special concern because they can be vectors of disease, including zoonoses. FleaExpand
Epidemiology of viral haemorrhagic disease and myxomatosis in a free-living population of wild rabbits
From January 1993 to June 1996, the epidemiology of myxomatosis and viral haemorrhagic disease (VHD) was studied in a free-living population of wild rabbits (Oryctolagus cuniculus) in Spain by meansExpand
Spatial distribution of Culicoides imicola, the main vector of bluetongue virus, in Spain
BLUETONGUE (BT) is a disease caused by a virus of the genus Orbivirus that is mainly transmitted among vertebrate hosts by several species of biting midges of the genus Culicoides (Diptera:Expand
Spatial and temporal variation in the abundance of Culicoides biting midges (Diptera: Ceratopogonidae) in nine European countries
BackgroundBiting midges of the genus Culicoides (Diptera: Ceratopogonidae) are vectors of bluetongue virus (BTV), African horse sickness virus and Schmallenberg virus (SBV). Outbreaks of both BTV andExpand
Effects of vaccination against viral haemorrhagic disease and myxomatosis on long-term mortality rates of European wild rabbits
The effects of vaccination against myxomatosis and viral haemorrhagic disease (VHD) on long-term mortality rates in European rabbits (Oryctolagus cuniculus) were studied from 1993 to 1996 byExpand
Short-term survival and dispersal of translocated European wild rabbits. Improving the release protocol
Translocation of European wild rabbit Oryctolagus cuniculus L. is one of the most frequent management tools to increase rabbit density in Spain, both as prey of several predators that are threatenedExpand
