Ixodid ticks of major economic importance and their distribution in South Africa
This monograph contributes to the information available on ticks, especially in a South African context. It further entails basic tick biology, the economic impact of ticks, tick control and acaricide resistance. The main purpose of this monograph is to serve as a guide and to make available selected geographical distribution maps of ticks which are so crucial in vector and disease control.
Illustrated guide to identification of African tick species
This monograph uses high resolution colour photographs of original specimens, which make identification easier - by visual matching of specimens under a stereomicroscope. The main morphological characters of 45 species in 15 genera are demonstrated, explained in a concise glossary, and illustrated in 148 figures. It also includes sections on tick biology, tick sampling for ecological studies, and the distribution and diseases associated with each species.
Tick-borne diseases in Southern Africa
Ticks and tick-borne diseases of livestock have been recognised as a major impediment to economic growth and a cause of poverty in communal areas in Africa. This monograph includes sections on theileriosis, babesiosis, heartwater and anaplasmosis, with introductory information on each tick-borne disease, how to diagnose the causative agent, and showing their associated clinical sign, post-mortem, and control.View Content
Control of ticks and tick-borne diseases in Southern Africa
A practical guide for tick control in livestock and game animalsThe focus of this monograph is the control of ticks and tick-borne diseases in Southern Africa. Part 1 is dedicated to a general discussion of tick control methods, as well as a summary of the problems of tick-borne diseases. Part 2 presents a brief discussion of tick-borne diseases. Part 3 approaches tick control methods based on the main target tick species, because of the very different conditions in which they occur and also the different tick-borne diseases they transmit.View Content
