Sarcoptic manage caused by Sarcoptes scabiei is responsible for epizootic disease in populations of wild canids in North America, Europe and Australia, wild cats in Europe and Africa, wild ungulates and wild boars in Europe, wombats and koalas in Australia, and great apes and various wild bovids in Africa. Although short-term mortality may appear devastating, in a self-sustaining population, mortality is non-compensatory and a mange epizootic generally does not affect long-term population… Expand
Sarcoptic Mange: An Emerging Panzootic in Wildlife.
TLDR
This review synthesizes the current knowledge concerning the geographic and host taxonomic distribution of mange in wildlife, the epidemiological connections between species, and the potential threat of sarcoptic mange for wildlife conservation and proposes a new agenda for the study of sarcoptes scabiei in wildlife. Expand
A review of sarcoptic mange in North American wildlife
TLDR
A summary of the current knowledge of mange in wildlife, with a focus on the most common clinically-affected species in North America including red foxes (Vulpes vulpes), gray wolves (Canis lupus), coyotes ( canis latrans), and American black bears (Ursus americanus). Expand
International meeting on sarcoptic mange in wildlife, June 2018, Blacksburg, Virginia, USA
TLDR
The workgroup concluded that research priorities should be on determining the variation in modes of transmission for S. scabiei in wildlife, factors associated with the variation of disease severity among species, and long-terms effects of the mange in wildlife populations. Expand
Assessing the role of dens in the spread, establishment and persistence of sarcoptic mange in an endangered canid.
TLDR
Simulations showed that den-associated transmission significantly increases the chances for the mite to spread, to establish and to persist in a population of hosts, and managers dealing with S. scabiei in this species as well as in other den-dwelling species should consider den- associated transmission. Expand
Sarcoptic Mange in Wild Caprinae of the Alps: Could Pathology Help in Filling the Gaps in Knowledge?
TLDR
The pathological features associated to sarcoptic mange in wildlife are reviewed, exploring different kinds of hypersensitivity and outcomes, with the objective of highlighting the major drivers in the different responses to this disease at an individual level and proposing some key topics for future research. Expand
The emergence of sarcoptic mange in Australian wildlife: an unresolved debate
TLDR
A review of the global literature reveals that inconsistent use of gene loci across studies significantly influences phylogenetic inference, and suggests further research is needed to confidently determine the origin, or multiple origins, of S. scabiei within Australia. Expand
First description of sarcoptic mange in wild European rabbit (Oryctolagus cuniculus)
  • J. Millán
  • Biology
  • European Journal of Wildlife Research
  • 2009
TLDR
The first cases of sarcoptic mange in a wild rabbit population are recorded from a hunting area in Majorca (Balearic Islands, Spain) and this disease may pose a risk for the conservation of wild rabbit and their predators. Expand
Sarcoptic mange vulnerability in carnivores of the Białowieża Primeval Forest, Poland: underlying determinant factors
TLDR
It is indicated that sociality and use of den sites are important factors affecting sarcoptic mange spread and prevalence in wild populations of carnivores and in carnivore communities such as in Białowieża Forest, numerous species may serve as a reservoir of the pathogen and favor its persistence in the environment. Expand
The impact of sarcoptic mange Sarcoptes scabiei on the British fox Vulpes vulpes population
TLDR
The questionnaire survey indicated that mange was broadly distributed across Britain, but areas of perceived high prevalence were mainly in central and southern England, and Habitat type did not significantly affect the presence/absence of mange or perceived prevalence rates. Expand
New techniques for an old disease: sarcoptic mange in the Iberian wolf.
TLDR
Necropsy data, with alopecia as the main feature and a slight effect on body condition, and trends derived from camera trapping coincided in showing a rather low prevalence and an apparently stable situation of the disease and its host, suggesting that this parasite is currently not a major threat for this wolf population.

Sarcoptic mange in Swedish wildlife.
  • T. Mörner

  • Revue scientifique et technique
  • 1992
TLDR
Although fox mange occurs as an epizootic in local populations, the number of foxes has increased again in many parts of Sweden and the duration of the disease before death due to emaciation has been shown experimentally to be over 90 days. Expand
The epizootiology of sarcoptic mange in chamois, Rupicapra rupicapra, from Italian Western Alps.
TLDR
Adult males appeared more vulnerable to mange than other sex and age classes and cases of mange were also more frequent in winter and spring, which may be explained by the interaction between the dynamics of mites, ethological patterns-rut activity-and the poorer physical condition of the host during this period. Expand
The epizootiology of sarcoptic mange in chamois, Rupicapra rupicapra, from the Italian eastern Alps.
TLDR
Adult males appeared more vulnerable to mange than other sex and age classes and cases of mange were also more frequent in winter and spring, which may be explained by the interaction between the dynamics of mites, ethological patterns-rut activity-and the poorer physical condition of the host during this period. Expand
The epizootiology and pathology of sarcoptic mange in coyotes, Canis latrans, from south Texas.
TLDR
Significant differences in prevalence of mange across habitat variables of host age and sex, and across seasons were related to the juvenile/adult ratio in the coyote population at any particular time because the infection progressed more rapidly in juveniles. Expand
Epizootiology of sarcoptic mange in a population of cantabrian chamois (Rupicapra pyrenaica parva) in northwestern Spain.
TLDR
The clinical, epidemiological, serological, pathological, pathological and parasitological findings of this epizootic from May 1993 to June 1995 are described in this report. Expand
Sarcoptic mange in wombats.
TLDR
Intense pruritus, a characteristic sign of hypersensitivity reactions to Sarcoptes in humans and animals has been reported in wombats with sarcoptic mange. Expand
SARCOPTIC MANGE IN SPANISH IBEX FROM SPAIN
TLDR
Both the clinical and the pathological (macroscopic and microscopic) aspects of the sarcoptic mange in Spanish ibex corresponded to the classic description of sarcopto-mange in other wild and domestic small ruminants. Expand
Present epidemiological problems of sarcoptic mange in wild and domestic animal
TLDR
The phenomenon of Norwegian Scabies in man is seen as a possible model to explain unusually heavy infestations in animals and the life cycle of Sarcoptes scabiei is outlined. Expand
Disease Reveals the Predator: Sarcoptic Mange, Red Fox Predation, and Prey Populations
TLDR
The study revealed red fox predation as a crucial factor in limiting the numbers of hares and grouse as well as fawns per doe of roe deer in autumn, and in conveying the 3—4 yr cyclic fluctuation pattern of voles to small game. Expand
Variation in the chaetotaxy and denticulation of Sarcoptes scabiei (Acarina: Sarcoptidae) from wild canids.
TLDR
It is suggested that the conditions associated with epizootics allow for increased phenotypic variability in this character and that the numerical fluctuations of populations during epizotics provide an opportunity for the genetic alteration of these mites. Expand
