Topics from this paper

Microtus californicus (Rodentia: Cricetidae)
TLDR
A sexually dimorphic, medium-sized vole, M. californicus is found in a wide range of habitats from arid uplands to wet meadows and salt marshes. Expand
Exposure of Small Rodents to Plague during Epizootics in Black-tailed Prairie Dogs
TLDR
The results suggest that grasshopper mice could be involved in epizootic spread of Y. pestis, and possibly, serve as a short-term reservoir for plague, but provide no evidence that the Grasshopper mouse or any small rodent acts as a long-term, enzootic host for Y. pests. Expand
NATURAL HISTORY OF PLAGUE : Perspectives from More than a Century of Research ∗
■ Abstract For more than a century, scientists have investigated the natural history of plague, a highly fatal disease caused by infection with the gram-negative bacterium Yersinia pestis. AmongExpand
Natural history of plague: perspectives from more than a century of research.
TLDR
The zoonotic nature of the disease and that plague exists in natural cycles involving transmission between rodent hosts and flea vectors are among the most important discoveries. Expand
INFLUENCES OF INTRODUCED PLAGUE ON NORTH AMERICAN MAMMALS: IMPLICATIONS FROM ECOLOGY OF PLAGUE IN ASIA
TLDR
Studies on the ecology of Y. pestis in ancient foci of central Asia and in western North America are reviewed, where the bacterium apparently has become established much more recently. Expand
Yersinia pestis--etiologic agent of plague
TLDR
The present understanding of the history, etiology, epidemiology, clinical aspects, and public health issues of plague is updated. Expand
Dynamics of a Plague Outbreak in Gunnison's Prairie Dog
TLDR
The present report provides detailed population data prior to and during a plague outbreak in the Gunnison's prairie dog. Expand
Studies on plague in the eastern Cape Province of South Africa.
TLDR
It was concluded that the Port Elizabeth-Uitenhage focus was in an inter-epidemic phase and that the human plague outbreak was an isolated incident. Expand
SEROLOGIC OBSERVATIONS DURING AN OUTBREAK OF RAT BORNE PLAGUE IN THE SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA OF CALIFORNIA
TLDR
Bacteriologic and serologic evidence points toward mutual exchange of fleas and plague infection between the intermingled rat and wild rodent populations. Expand
