Seasonal synchrony: the key to tick-borne encephalitis foci identified by satellite data

Abstract:

Summary: A previous analysis of tick infestation patterns on rodents in Slovakia suggested that the key to the focal distribution of western-type tick-borne encephalitis virus (TBEv) in Europe is the geographically variable degree of synchrony in the seasonal activity of larval and nymphal Ixodes ricinus ticks.
