The base sequence of the internal transcribed spacer 1 (ITS 1) of ribosomal DNA of the tick Ixodes scapularis Say (= I. dammini Spielman, Clifford, Piesman & Corwin) was determined to assess genetic divergence between populations along the eastern (Atlantic) seaboard of the United States. Twenty sequences were obtained from localities down the eastern margin of the species's range: 10 from the southeast (Georgia and Florida), seven from the middle east (North Carolina, Maryland), and three from… CONTINUE READING
