The effects of introduced mammal species on the ecology of parasites are often under investigated. The sika deeer, Cervus nippon, is host species of many hard ticks. We collected 8348 ticks on an island where sika deer were introduced. The most representative species was Haemaphysalis megaspinosa (n = 4198; 50.3%), followed by H. longicornis (n = 1945; 23.3%), H. cornigera (n = 1179; 14.1%), H. flava (n = 713; 8.5%), Ixodes turdus (n = 289; 3.7%), I. granulatus (n = 22; 0.3%), and H. hystricis… Expand

Ecological traps and boosters of ixodid ticks: The differing ecological roles of two sympatric introduced mammals.
TLDR
The results of this study extend the understanding of the ecological roles of two introduced wildlife species in Japan by suggesting the raccoon may act as an ecological booster, thereby increasing the success rate of bloodmeals and reproduction in ticks. Expand
Potential Spatial Distribution of the Newly Introduced Long-horned Tick, Haemaphysalis longicornis in North America
TLDR
The North American distributional potential of the recently invaded tick, Haemaphysalis longicornis, was estimated using occurrence data from its geographic range in other parts of the world and relevant climatic data sets to indicate a broad potential distribution, but restricted to three sectors.

Higher sika deer density is associated with higher local abundance of Haemaphysalis longicornis nymphs and adults but not larvae in central Japan
TLDR
Findings show that a high density of deer along with other biotic and abiotic factors is associated with increased risk of vector-borne diseases through amplified local abundance of questing nymphal and adult H. longicornis. Expand
Species diversity and abundance of ticks in three habitats in southern Italy.
TLDR
The southern Italian climate is suitable for different tick species, which may find a preferred 'climate niche' during a specific season, when a combination of factors associated with the presence of suitable hosts will facilitate their development and reproduction. Expand
INTRODUCTION OF POTENTIAL HEARTWATER VECTORS AND OTHER EXOTIC TICKS INTO FLORIDA ON IMPORTED REPTILES
TLDR
The extent of introduction of exotic ticks into Florida on imported reptiles and the most commonly encountered ticks were A. latum and A. marmoreum, both of which are vectors of heartwater, a lethal disease of cattle, sheep, goats, and deer. Expand
Biological Parameters of Rhipicephalus (Boophilus) microplus (Acari: Ixodidae) Fed on Rabbits, Sheep, and Cattle
TLDR
The data suggest that rabbits could be as an alternative host to cultivate R. microplus for evaluating vaccines and chemical and biological medicines against the tick in the laboratory, although the biological parameters of ticks were less than those from cattle. Expand
Prevalence of Tick-Borne Pathogens in Host-Seeking Amblyomma americanum (Acari: Ixodidae) and Odocoileus virginianus (Artiodactyla: Cervidae) in Florida
TLDR
E. chaffeensis, E. ewingii, and spotted fever group rickettsia are highly prevalent in host-seeking lone star ticks and in white-tailed deer in Florida and underscore their zoonotic potential in this region. Expand

TLDR
Methods and results of attempts to quantify rates of tick development and the probability of diapause are reviewed, as well as the likelihood of ticks attaching to a host and tick mortality rates. Expand

TLDR
The molecular characterization of the tick-pathogen interface is rapidly advancing and providing new avenues for the development of novel control strategies for both tick infestations and their associated pathogens. Expand
