Clave ilustrada para la identificación de los taxones supraespecíficos de Siphonaptera de México
The 138 species and 47 Mexican flea genera (Siphonaptera) belong to the following families and subfamilies: Rhopalopsyllidae (Rhopalopsyllinae), Pulicidae (Tunginae and Pulicinae), CeratophyllidaeExpand
THE POTENTIAL ROLE OF SWIFT FOXES (VULPES VELOX) AND THEIR FLEAS IN PLAGUE OUTBREAKS IN PRAIRIE DOGS
TLDR
Examining antibody prevalence rates of a population of swift foxes in Colorado, USA, and using polymerase chain reaction (PCR) assays to examine their flea biota for evidence of Y. pestis found no evidence of the bacterium. Expand
Burrow Dusting or Oral Vaccination Prevents Plague-Associated Prairie Dog Colony Collapse
TLDR
Applying insecticide or vaccine prior to epizootic emergence blunted effects of plague on prairie dog survival and abundance, thereby preventing colony collapse, and successful plague mitigation will likely entail strategic combined uses of burrow dusting and oral vaccination within large colonies or colony complexes.

Diversity of rickettsiae in a rural community in northern California.
Far northern California forests are highly biodiverse in wildlife reservoirs and arthropod vectors that may propagate rickettsial pathogens in nature. The proximity of small rural communities toExpand
Rodent–Pika Parasite Spillover in Western North America
TLDR
Examination of historical and contemporary records of fleas on pikas from sites at different elevations in the Sierra Nevada and Rocky Mountains and the Pacific Northwest provides evidence that rodents and pika interact enough to allow considerable parasite spillover, and which could be exacerbated as pikAs are increasingly stressed by climate change at lower elevations some rodent species expand up-elevation in the face of increasing global warming.

SEASON OF DELTAMETHRIN APPLICATION AFFECTS FLEA AND PLAGUE CONTROL IN WHITE-TAILED PRAIRIE DOG (CYNOMYS LEUCURUS) COLONIES, COLORADO, USA
TLDR
Autumn dusting may offer advantages over spring in suppressing overwinter or early-spring flea activity, but timing should be adjusted to precede the annual decline in aboveground activity for hibernating prairie dog species. Expand
Prevalence of the Generalist Flea Pulex simulans on Black-tailed Prairie Dogs (Cynomys ludovicianus) in New Mexico, USA: The Importance of Considering Imperfect Detection
TLDR
The results suggest P. simulans can attain high prevalence on prairie dogs, especially in old colonies, and may serve as a “bridge vector” between Cynomys and other mammalian hosts of the plague bacterium Yersinia pestis, and even function as a reservoir of Y. pestis between outbreaks. Expand
PATHOGEN INFECTION AND EXPOSURE, AND ECTOPARASITES OF THE FEDERALLY ENDANGERED AMARGOSA VOLE (MICROTUS CALIFORNICUS SCIRPENSIS), CALIFORNIA, USA
TLDR
Of the ectoparasites collected, the tick Ixodes minor is of particular interest because the study area is well outside of the species' reported range and because I. minor ticks infest migratory birds as well as rodents, showing a potential mechanism for pathogens to be imported from outside the Amargosa ecosystem. Expand
Duration of Plague (Yersinia pestis) Outbreaks in Black-Tailed Prairie Dog (Cynomys ludovicianus) Colonies of Northern Colorado
TLDR
It is demonstrated that Y. pestis transmission occurs over periods from several months to over a year in prairie dog populations before observed die-offs. Expand
