Contribution number 14 from Antikythira Bird Observatory– Hellenic Ornithological Society


West Nile virus (WNV) is a mosquito-borne virus with birds as the primary vertebrate host. Ticks have, however, been suggested to be potential reservoirs of WNV. ABO participated in a study than investigated ticks role in the spread of the virus. Ticks, were collected from birds migrating northwards from Africa to Europe at ABO and the island of Capri, Italy. None of the ticks collected was found to be WNV positive. Thus, there was no evidence that Hyalomma marginatum s.l. ticks play a role in the spread of WNV from Africa to Europe.

The study was published at the Vol 4 (2014) of the Ecology and Epidemiology Journa
