, : Vertical distribution of ticks of domestic animals in Nilgiri hills (Tamil Nadu). Journal of Communicable Diseases 16(4): 323-325

Studies were carried out in July 1983 to determine the vertical distribution of ticks on domestic animals (cattle, buffalos, oxen, dogs and goats) in the Nilgiri Hills, Tamil Nadu, India. A total of 8 species of ticks was collected from 126 different domestic animals in localities at altitudes ranging from 320 to 2240 m above sea level. Only 2 of the tick species, Boophilus microplus and Rhipicephalus haemaphysaloides, were found throughout the range of localities.
