The use of vegetation types for mapping the distribution of an exophilic tick on a country-wide scale: the example of Ixodes ricinus (Linnaeus, 1758), the vector of Lyme disease in France


, : The use of vegetation types for mapping the distribution of an exophilic tick on a country-wide scale: the example of Ixodes ricinus (Linnaeus, 1758), the vector of Lyme disease in France. Annales de Parasitologie Humaine et Comparee 68(4): 188-195

Vegetation maps of France (scale 1/200 000) were studied in an attempt to determine the distribution of I. ricinus in France. Different types of forest were recognised according to their dominant tree species (this was largely determined by maritime influences and the effects of altitude). Ticks were then sampled in several stations (3-10 for each type of forest) by flagging.
