A generic population model for the African tick Rhipicephalus appendiculatus

Abstract:

Summary: We present a simulation population model for the African tick Rhipicephalus appendiculatus, based on previous analyses of the mortality factors most closely correlated with observed population changes at 11 sites in equatorial and South Africa. The model incorporates temperature-dependent rates of egg production and development, climate-driven density-independent mortality rates, particularly during the adult-larval stage, and density-dependent regulation of both nymphs and...
