[Body sizes of the taiga tick in different parts of its geographic range (Ixodidae)].

Abstract

912 hungry females of Ixodes persulcatus from 19 sites of their distribution area (from Estonia to the Kuril Islands) were measured. The length of the body and that of the dorsal shield reach their maximum in the Primorje and in the south of Khabarovsk territories. Northwards and westwards and on the islands of the Pacific ticks are smaller.
