Vector-borne pathogen spread through ticks on migratory birds: a probabilistic spatial risk model for South-Western europe.

Abstract

Tick-borne pathogens can spread easily through the movements of infested birds. An important example is viruses that pose a threat to humans and that are carried in Hyalomma ticks that move from Africa into south-western Europe. This study evaluates the probability of arrival of migrating birds from Africa into Spain and the environmental suitability of… (More)
