Ticks, Dogs, and Humans: An Endangered Community

  • 367 Accesses

Part of the Parasitology Research Monographs book series (Parasitology Res. Monogr.,volume 13)

Abstract

Dogs and humans live in a close community and thus several parasites have developed methods to infect both host groups. This ability has increased considerably their chances of survival, since the vectors (leeches, mosquitoes, flies, ticks, etc.) live in different biotopes.
