  1. 1. Plants as Sources of Natural and Effective Acaricides : Against Ixodes ricinus  (Acari: Ixodidae)

    Författare :Fawzeia Elmhalli; Giulio Grandi; Richard Wall; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Acaricidal; Ixodes ricinus; Libyan plants; essential oils; Plant-derived acaricides.; Biology with specialization in Systematics; Biologi med inriktning mot systematik;

    Sammanfattning : Ticks and tick-borne diseases are major health hazards worldwide, with increasing numbers of cases of Lyme disease and tick-borne encephalitis reported yearly. Meanwhile, concerns about the environmental impact and safety of chemical acaricides are driving research into alternative control methods, such as plant-based acaricides. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Host-seeking activity of Ixodes ricinus in relation to the epidemiology of Lyme borreliosis in Sweden

    Författare :Hans Mejlon; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Developmental biology; Borrelia burgdorferi; control; Ixodes ricinus; Lyme borreliosis; seasonality; Utvecklingsbiologi; Developmental biology; Utvecklingsbiologi; Entomology; entomologi;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis examines seasonal, diel and vertical distribution patterns of activity of host-seeking Ixodes ricinus (L.) ticks at three localities in south-central Sweden. In addition, by examining the prevalence of infection in ticks with Lyme borreliosis (LB) spirochetes, Borrelia burgdorferi s. LÄS MER

  3. 3. The Origin of the Genus Flavivirus and the Ecology of Tick-Borne Pathogens

    Författare :John H.-O. Pettersson; Thomas Jaenson; Sven Bergström; Kenneth Nilsson; Mikael Thollesson; Per-Eric Lindgren; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Flavivirus; Virus dating; Molecular dating; Biogeography; Ixodes ricinus; Minimum infection rate; TBE; Tick-borne encephalitis virus; Rickettsia helvetica; Anaplasma phagocytophilum; Infection prevalence; RT-PCR; Biology with specialization in Systematics; Biologi med inriktning mot systematik;

    Sammanfattning : The present thesis examines questions related to the temporal origin of the Flavivirus genus and the ecology of tick-borne pathogens. In the first study, we date the origin and divergence time of the Flavivirus genus. It has been argued that the first flaviviruses originated after the last glacial maximum. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Plant-Derived Chemicals as Tick Repellents

    Författare :Samira Sadek Garboui; Thomas Jaenson; Katinka Pålsson; Raimondas Mozuraitis; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Ixodes ricinus; plants; essential oils; tick repellent; Sweden; Biology; Biologi;

    Sammanfattning : Ixodes ricinus is the main vector of Lyme borreliosis and Tick-borne encephalitis in Europe. Repellents provide a practical means of protection against tick bites and can therefore reduce transmission of tick-borne diseases. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Ticks and Tick-borne Encephalitis Virus : From Nature to Infection

    Författare :Naveed Asghar; Magnus Johansson; Patrik Dinnétz; Travis Taylor; Södertörns högskola; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Co-occurrence; Environmental factors; Flavivirus; Ixodes ricinus; Natural foci; Non-coding region; Poly A tract; Quasispecies; Questing ticks; Scandinavia; Tick-borne encephalitis virus; Vegetation.; Environmental Studies; Miljövetenskapliga studier;

    Sammanfattning : Vector-borne diseases are an increasing global threat to humans due to climate changes, elevating the risk of infections transmitted by mosquitos, ticks, and other arthropod vectors. Ixodes ricinus, a common tick in Europe, transmits dangerous tick-borne pathogens to humans. LÄS MER
