Title: Fleas, hosts and habitat: What can we predict about the spread of vector-borne zoonotic diseases?

Publication Series: Not categorized

Description: Vector-borne diseases of humans and wildlife are experiencing resurgence across the globe. I examine the dynamics of flea borne diseases through a comparative analysis of flea literature and analyses of field data collected from three sites in New Mexico: The Sevilleta National Wildlife Refuge, the Sandia Mountains and the Valles Caldera National Preserve (VCNP). My objectives were to use these analyses to better predict and manage for the spread of diseases such as plague (Yersinia pestis).

Keywords: flea borne diseases, zoonotic diseases, vector-borne
