Biology of Ticks is the most comprehensive work on tick biology and tick-borne diseases. This second edition is a multi-authoured work, featuring the research and analyses of renowned experts across the globe. Spanning two volumes, the book examines the systematics, biology, structure, ecological adaptations, evolution, genomics and the molecular processes that underpin the growth, development and survival of these important disease-transmitting parasites. Also discussed is the remarkable array of diseases transmitted (or caused) by ticks, as well as modern methods for their control.

Volume I covers the biology of the tick and features chapters on tick systematics, tick life cycles, external and internal anatomy, and others dedicated to specific organ systems, specifically, the tick integument, mouthparts and digestive system, salivary glands, waste removal, salivary glands, respiratory system, circulatory system and hemolymph, fat body, the nervous and sensory systems and reproductive systems.

Volume II includes chapters on the ecology of non-nidicolous and nidicolous ticks, genetics and genomics (including the genome of the Lyme disease vector Ixodes scapularis) and immunity, including host immune responses to tick feeding and tick-host interactions, as well as the tick's innate immune system that prevents and/or controls microbial infections. Six chapters cover in depth the many diseases caused by the major tick-borne pathogens, including tick-borne protozoa, viruses, rickettsiae of all types, other types of bacteria (e.g., the Lyme disease agent) and diseases related to tick paralytic agents and toxins. The remaining chapters are devoted to tick control using vaccines, acaricides, repellents, biocontrol, and, finally, techniques for breeding ticks in order to develop tick colonies for scientific study.

Lyme Borreliosis in Europe and North America: Epidemiology and Clinical Practice, Sood, Sunil K (editor)
126 Sood, Sunil K (editor) Lyme Borreliosis in Europe and North America: Epidemiology and Clinical Practice
0470647523 / 9780470647523 New
 
2011. 28cm. Pp.274. Hardbound.

Lyme borreliosis, popularly known as Lyme disease, remains the most commonly reported tick-transmitted infection in North America and Europe. A growing body of scientific and clinical evidence has facilitated early diagnosis and effective treatment. Nonetheless, there are a number of misconceptions about this infectious disease that have given rise to unproven, potentially dangerous alternative therapies. In Lyme Borreliosis in Europe and North America, a team of authors whose expertise spans basic research, epidemiology, and clinical practice has compiled evidence-based information on Lyme borreliosis.

Lyme Borreliosis in Europe and North America begins with a review of the disease's epidemiology, the causative Borrelia genospecies, and tick vectors. It then explores pathogenesis, diagnosis, and treatment. Next, the book examines the role of serologic, culture, and molecular diagnostic methods. The book also features a chapter on prognosis, offering an evidence-based review of outcome studies, as well as practical advice to physicians to help them manage the challenging clinical scenario of chronic symptoms attributed to Borrelia infection. The final chapter is a guide to prevention strategies, including the management of tick bites.

Because differences in Borrelia genospecies are responsible for differences in the clinical presentation of Lyme borreliosis between North America and Europe, this book provides descriptions of the disease as it presents on each continent. Most of the chapters have been cowritten by experts on each continent, in order to provide a balanced perspective that combines European and North American findings, practices, and experiences.

Free-ranging Cats, Behavior, Ecology, Management, Spotte, Stephen
129 Spotte, Stephen Free-ranging Cats, Behavior, Ecology, Management
1118884019 / 9781118884010 New
 
2014. 26cm. Pp.xix, 296. Photos, figures. Hardbound.

This landmark book provides the most comprehensive review yet published on the behaviour, ecology and management of free-ranging domestic cats, whether they be owned, stray, or feral. It reviews control methods and their progress, including viruses, and explains why feral and stray cats should be eradicated, not simply neutered and released, by describing their effects on prey populations.

Free-ranging Cats: Behavior, Ecology, Management is a surprise deviation in topic for the author who is a marine scientist and this simply underlines the great concern with which the wider community views the impact of feral and free-ranging cats on native wildlife around the world.

This book is a valuable reference for all practitioners.
