About this book

Ticks are obligate blood-sucking arthropods found in almost every region of the world. They are very important vectors of human and animal diseases. Tick-borne protozoan diseases such as Theileriasis and Babesiosis cause mortality and morbidity in domestic animals in many countries including India. An understanding of taxonomy, vector biology and ecology in the geographic regions of each country is essential so that a programme of control measures can be implemented.

This book focuses on the ticks found in India and will be invaluable for health authorities, tick biologists and veterinary researchers. It covers taxonomic identification, medical importance and bionomics of haemaphysaline ticks. It presents the taxonomy and biological description of the 42 haemaphysaline ticks which are found in the Indian subcontinent. It includes information on the ecology and biology of many of these species. Keys provided for subgeneric and individual identification will be useful for easy identification of Indian haemaphysaline ticks.
