Tick-Borne Encephalitis

Effects of deer density on tick infestation of rodents and the hazard of tick-borne encephalitis. I: empirical assessment.

Tick borne encephalitis (TBE) is endemic to eastern and central Europe with broad temporal and spatial variation in infection risk. Although many studies have focused on understanding the environmental and socio-economic factors affecting exposure of humans to TBE, comparatively little research has been devoted to assessing the underlying ecological mechanisms of TBE occurrence in enzootic cycles, and therefore TBE hazard.
