The geographical distribution and ecological preferences of Haemaphysalis in domestic animals in Iran were studied 4 times a year from April 2003 to March 2005. A total of 1,622 ixodid tick specimens were collected from 3 different zones. Among them, 108 (6.7%) Haemaphysalis ticks, consisting of 6 species, were identified; H. punctata (3.4%), H. parva (0.5%), H. sulcata (0.6%), H. choldokovskyi (1.7%), H. concinna (0.06%) and Haemaphysalis sp. (0.6%). H. punctata was the most abundant species…

Ixodidae ticks in cattle and sheep in Sistan and Baluchestan Province (Iran).

The results show that H. marginatum, H. excavatum, as well as ticks of the R. sanguineus group are dominant in the surveyed area.

Prevalence of ixodid ticks on cattle in Mazandaran province, Iran.

The results show that Boophilus annulatus, Rhipicephalus bursa, and Hyalomma species are dominant tick species in the surveyed area.

Distribution of ticks (Acari: Ixodidae) infesting domestic ruminants in mountainous areas of Golestan province, Iran.

Tick collection was carried out during four seasons, twice per season over a period of 12 month from March 2009 through February 2010 in two districts, Azadshahr and Ramian, and seasonal activity of each ixodid tick infesting domestic ruminants was determined.

IxodId tIcks In khoozestan ProvInce, south-West of Iran

The present faunistic study aimed to determine species belonging to Ixodidae ticks, infesting cattle of Khoozestan province, south-west of Iran, and identified eight tick species in four different genera.

The aim of this study was to determine the ticks founa of sheep and goats that grazed on the outskirts of mazandaran in 2012 and to control the ticks and tick-borne diseases.

Hard Tick Species of Livestock and their Bioecology in Golestan Province, North of Iran

The frequency of ticks in spring was more than other seasons and the least was observed in winter and implication of possible prevention measures for diseases transmitted by ticks is suggested.

Hard Ticks on Domestic Ruminants and their Seasonal Population Dynamics in Yazd Province, Iran

Some of the collected ticks may play an important role for transmission of vector borne disease to human; therefore, the results of this study will provide a clue for vectors of tick-borne diseases in the region for local authorities for implementation of disease control.

The study proves to change the traditional livestock's to the industrial livestock's tick contamination and highlights the importance of ticks and shows need to their control and tick pest management.

ticks are considered to be the main vectors for transmission of various diseases to animals and human. the present faunistic study aimed to determine species belonging to Ixodidae ticks, infesting

Diversity and seasonal distribution of ixodid ticks in the natural habitat of domestic ruminants in north and south of Iran

The results revealed that the distribution of ixodid ticks species and their prevalence differed between two regions, mostly depending on the macro and microclimate conditions.



Studies on Some Ecological Aspects of Tick West Azarbidjan, Iran

Out of the nine species of ixodid ticks recorded, Ornithodorua lohorxmsis was the only argasid tick, which infested sheep, goat and cattle, and indicated that hard ticks were apparently found throughout the year, but were more abundant in spring and least in autumn.

Distribution and ecology of ticks (Acari: Ixodidae) infesting livestock in Tunisia: an overview of eighth years field collections.

A synthesis on tick distribution, their biology and their role as vectors of pathogens in domestic animals, particularly cattle, in Tunisia is reported.

[Detection of Rickettsia hulinii in ticks of the Haemaphysalis concinna species in Russia].

The presence of Rickettsia hulinii was detected in ticks of the Haemaphysalis concinna species in the Asiatic part of Russia. It was the first detection of these rickettsiae outside the territory of

Haemaphysalis (Allophysalis) kopetdaghica: identity and discovery of each feeding stage on the wild goat in Northern Iran (Ixodoidea: Ixodidae).

The distinctive H. (A.) kopetdaghica shares several specialized structural features between the immature and adult stages and shows less sexual dimorphism than in other Allophysalis species.

Rickettsiae of the spotted-fever group in ixodid ticks from Hungary: identification of a new genotype ('Candidatus Rickettsia kotlanii').

Three common European 'anthrophilic' ticks, Ixodes ricinus, Haemaphysalis concinna and Dermacentor reticulatus, were collected in Hungary and tested, in assays based on nested PCR, for rickettsiae of the spotted-fever group, raising the possibility that ricksettsiae other than Rickettsia slovaca are involved in human disease in Hungary.

Detection of Rickettsia sibirica in ticks and small mammals collected in three different regions of China.

The results not only demonstrated a horizontal transmission of the rickettsiae between ticks and hosts but also suggested that R. sibirica is widely distributed in China and its hosts and vectors are various, all that indicating the existence of natural foci of North Asia tick-borne spotted fever specific to China.
