A modified matrix model to describe the seasonal population ecology of the European tick Ixodes ricinus

Abstract:

The sheep tick Ixodes ricinus is the most multicompetent vector in Europe, which is responsible for significant diseases of humans and livestock throughout the northern hemisphere. Modelling the tick's complex seasonal dynamics, upon which pathogen transmission potential depends, underpins the analysis of tick-borne disease risk and potential tick control. We use laboratory- and field-derived empirical data to construct a population model for I. ricinus. The model is a substantially modified ...
