Ecological immunology aims to explain variation among hosts in the strength and efficacy of immunological defenses. Here, we present one of the first experimental demonstrations of a parasite-induced immune response in a wild bird population.

Host immune responses to ectoparasitic arthropods are critical elements in determining the nature of animal host-arthropod relationships . The Immunology of Host-Ectoparasitic Arthropod Relationships.

Host immune responses to ectoparasitic arthropods are critical elements in determining the nature of animal host-arthropod relationships, including transmission of vector-borne pathogens. This is the first book to provide a comprehensive analysis for both the student and specialist of the emerging field of "immunoentomology". Our fundamental understanding of this topic has Host immune responses to ectoparasitic arthropods are critical elements in determining the nature of animal host-arthropod relationships, including transmission of vector-borne pathogens.

Hosts: Birds are the hosts: Knemidokoptes gallinae (Depluming-mite) burrows into the feather shafts of poultry birds; Knemidokoptes mutans (Scaly-leg mite) burrows into the skin on feet and legs of poultry and other species of bird. Signs: The Depluming-mite will infest all feathered regions of the body.

Arthropod Transmission of some arboviruses from one vertebrate host to another can .

Arthropods are a major reservoir of viral genetic diversity and it is quite possible that they were central to the evolution ssRNA(−) viruses. Transmission of some arboviruses from one vertebrate host to another can also occur by additional mechanisms not involving an arthropod. Thus, in central Europe a variety of small rodents and ticks are reservoir hosts of tick-borne encephalitis virus. Ticks are the most versatile ectoparasitic arthropods and can transmit a variety of infectious diseases (viral, bacterial, and protozoan) and even inject paralytic toxins (tick paralysis) during their prolonged blood meals.

Host immune responses to ectoparasitic arthropods are critical elements in determining the nature of animal host-arthropod relationships, including transmission of vector-borne pathogens. This is the first book to provide a comprehensive analysis for both the student and specialist in the emerging field of "immunoentomology". Our fundamental understanding of this topic has increased dramatically in recent years. Chapters prepared by specialists from the USA, UK, and Australia provide comprehensive reviews of key subjects. The book concludes with a consideration of the application of fundamental knowledge about the immunology of the host-arthropod interface to the development of anti-arthropod vaccines. It is aimed particularly at medical and veterinary entomologists and acarologists, as well as immunologists.
