    Red face Ticks of Domestic Animals in Africa:

    a Guide to Identification of Species. [by Alan Walker, et col.]



    Printed by Atalanta, Houten, The Netherlands.
    University of Edinburgh
    First published 2003 [Revised 2007]
    ISBN 0-9545173-0-X

    221p, fully illustrated.

    The need for this guide became apparent to the authors during their work as researchers and teachers on the biology and control of ticks and tick borne diseases. All of us have struggled with the usual identification keys for ticks to gain our knowledge as specialists.We have witnessed the difficulties that nonspecialists encounter when they attempt to identify ticks. The need to identify ticks of domestic animals using morphological, field and clinical characteristics increases through the demand for improved control measures, veterinary interventions, development projects and field research on tick ecology. Despite the recent application of molecular techniques to the identification of ticks there is unlikely to be, in the near future, a comprehensive and simple system for these techniques to be used for general diagnostic purposes. Furthermore to develop such a system the need will remain for collections of ticks reliably identified by morphological characters.
    Thus we aim to provide a simple, easily available means of identifying ticks using the equipment likely
    to found in diagnostic laboratories and using the existing skills of non-specialist personnel.
