Epidemiological studies on plague in Calcutta. Part III. The role of domestic and perldomestic rodents in the maintenance of plague infection and variation In virulence of the organism



Epidemiological studies on plague in Calcutta. Part III. The role of domestic and perldomestic rodents in the maintenance of plague infection and variation In virulence of the organism



Indian J. med. Res, New Delhi, 49: 6, 1019-1038. 2 pp



An account is given in the first paper of the bionomics of Xenopsylla cheopis (Roths.) and X. ostia Roths., the predominant rat fleas in Calcutta, which were studied in a laboratory at room temperature and humidity throughout the seasons, and in the field in two wards of the city, one in which plague was endemic and one free from the disease. The following. is based mainly on the authors' concluding remarks.
