  2. 2. The function of seasonal habitat shifts in two congeneric mayflies in a boreal river

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Olle Söderström; Umeå universitet.; [1988]
    Keywords : LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; Habitat utilization; diel activity; orientation; predation; life-history; temperature; food quality; mayflies; Parameletus chelifer; Parameletus minor;

    Abstract : Unregulated North Swedish rivers show large seasonal variations in their physical characteristics. During winter the whole littoral zone freezes solid, and in spring the water flow increases rapidly and the same areas become flooded. The two mayflies Parameletus chelifer and P. minor are common in the North Swedish river Vindelälven. READ MORE

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

    Abstract : 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. READ MORE

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

    Abstract : 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. READ MORE

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

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Abstract : 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. READ MORE
