Climate warming and changes in habitat suitability for Boophilus microplus (Acari: Ixodidae) in Central America.

Abstract

Remote sensing on the basis of AVHRR (advanced very high resolution radiometer) satellite imagery was used, together with standard geostatistical methods (cokriging), to estimate the distribution of habitat suitability (HS) for the tick Boophilus microplus (Canestrini) in Central America. Most attention was paid to the expected limits of tick distribution… (More)
