ABSTRACT Brazil has the third richest bird diversity of the world; however, there are few data concerning ticks (Acari: Ixodidae) parazitizing birds. The aim of the study was to report tick infestations on wild birds from an Atlantic rain forest region of Brazil. During 2 yr, ticks were collected from birds and from the environment in 12 forest sites. A total of 1,725 birds were captured representing 80 species from 24 families. In total, 223 (13%) birds were found infested by immature stages… Expand
Ticks (Acari: Ixodidae) infesting wild birds in the eastern Amazon, northern Brazil, with notes on rickettsial infection in ticks
TLDR
Tick infestations on wild birds in a region of the eastern Brazilian Amazon are reported to evaluate the rickettsial infection of these ticks and Rickettsia amblyommii is found to be not currently recognized as human or animal pathogen. Expand
Associations between wild birds and hard ticks (Acari: Ixodidae) in Colombia.
TLDR
This is the first study addressing the associations between wild birds and hard ticks in Colombia and describes new associations between birds and ticks in the Americas. Expand
Ticks (Acari: Ixodidae) infesting wild birds in the Atlantic Forest in northeastern Brazil, with notes on rickettsial infection in ticks
TLDR
This study provides some bird species found infested by A. longirostre, A. parkeri, or A. cajennense for the first time and expands the distribution of R. amblyommii-infected A.Longirostre ticks. Expand
Additional information on ticks (Ixodidae) infesting birds in Atlantic Forest fragments in State of Paraná, South Brazil
TLDR
This study provides new tick-host records for the state of Paraná and for Brazil, with two nymphs identified as Amblyomma sp. Expand
Ticks (Acari: Ixodidae) on wild birds in north-central Argentina.
TLDR
All the species of Amblyomma and Haemaphysalis found on birds in Argentina have been also detected on humans and are proven or potential vectors for human diseases, therefore, their avian hosts are probable reservoirs of human pathogens in Argentina. Expand
Bacteria of the genus Rickettsia in ticks (Acari: Ixodidae) collected from birds in Costa Rica.
TLDR
The occurrence of I. minor in ticks parasitizing wild birds in Costa Rica for the first time and a number of new bird host-tick associations are reported. Expand
Rickettsia parkeri strain Atlantic rainforest in ticks (Acari: Ixodidae) of wild birds in Arauca, Orinoquia region of Colombia
TLDR
The importance of wild birds as hosts and dispersal agents of ticks infected with pathogenic rickettsiae, as well as the need to monitor migratory birds in the Orinoquia and other regions of Colombia and America, is manifested. Expand
Additional information about tick parasitism in Passeriformes birds in an Atlantic Forest in southeastern Brazil
TLDR
Investigating the occurrence of ticks in Passeriformes inhabiting an Atlantic Forest fragment in southeastern Brazil, during the dry and rainy seasons, by means of parasitological indexes and multiple correspondence analysis, to determine the factors that influence tick parasitism in these birds found 22 new bird-parasite relations.

TLDR
The most prevalent tick species, A. cajennense, was found on both wild and domestic animals and was also prevalent in the environment during a one-year sampling period at the Brazilian Farming Research Company beef cattle unit (Embrapa Beef Cattle), which is located within the urban area of Campo Grande, Mato Grosso do Sul.

Ticks (Acari: Ixodidae) Infesting Wild Birds in an Atlantic Forest Area in the State of São Paulo, Brazil, with Isolation of Rickettsia from the Tick Amblyomma longirostre
TLDR
It is concluded that strain AL is a new rickettsia genotype belonging to the same species of strain ARANHA, which is closely related to Candidatus ’R. Expand
Ticks (Acari: Ixodidae) on wild animals from the Porto-Primavera Hydroelectric power station area, Brazil.
TLDR
From June 2000 to June 2001, a total of 741 ticks were collected from 51 free-living wild animals captured at the Porto-Primavera Hydroelectric power station area, located alongside an approximately 180 km course of the Paran river, comprising 9 species of 3 genera: Ambly-omma (7 species), Boophilus (1) and Anocentor (1).

Amblyomma aureolatum and Ixodes auritulus (Acari: Ixodidae) on birds in southern Brazil, with notes on their ecology
TLDR
The results suggest the infestation of birds by ticks was significantly higher at the biotopes formed by forest at its first stage of regeneration ‘capoeira’ and the original Araucaria forest habitat ‘mata’ than the ecotone between forest and urban areas ‘peripheral area’. Expand
Ticks collected on birds in the state of São Paulo, Brazil
TLDR
The results showed that Passeriformes seems to be primary hosts for subadult stages of A. longirostre whereas ground-feeding passerine birds seem to be the most important for both A. calcaratum and A. nodosum. Expand
A Collection of Ticks (Ixodidae) from Wild Birds in Uruguay
TLDR
Thirty nine wild birds from seven families were caught from 4 to 7 of February, 2004 at Rincón da Vassoura (31°15′ S 56°03′ W) Department of Tacuarembó, Uruguay, and ninety one nymphs and forty one larvae of Ixodidae were recovered from them. Expand
Rickettsia Species Infecting Amblyomma cooperi Ticks from an Area in the State of São Paulo, Brazil, Where Brazilian Spotted Fever Is Endemic
TLDR
Results do not support the role of A. cooperi in the ecology of R. rickettsii in the area studied, but they add two more species of ricksettsiae to the poorly developed list of species occurring in ticks in South America. Expand

TLDR
In Brazil, capybaras and opossums are the most probable amplifier hosts for R. rickettsii, among A. cajennense ticks, and small rodents for A. aureolatum, which implies that R. gaelic needs amplifier vertebrate hosts for its perpetuation in nature, in order to create new lines of infected ticks (horizontal transmission).

This study demonstrated that A. ovale can be a vector of Hepatozoon spp. Expand
Rickettsial Infection in Animals and Brazilian Spotted Fever Endemicity
TLDR
The results indicate that surveys of horse serum are a useful method of BSF surveillance in areas where humans are exposed to A. cajennense ticks, and no dogs or horses from BSF-nonendemic areas had serologic titers against R. rickettsii antigens, although they were continually exposed to the ticks.
