    The resistance rate of different populations of the same breed of creole Guadeloupean goats to Cowdria ruiminatium infection varied greatly depending on the previous heartwater history of each population. After experimental ...

  • Ambrosio, R.E.; Potgieter, F.T.; Bigalke, R.D. (Published by the Government Printer, Pretoria., 1987)
    The Tm value of DNA from Anaplasma centrale and Anaplasma marginale was found to be 87,1 °C and 89,3 °C, respectively. The G + C content, calculated from the Tm, was 45,1% for A. centrale and 48,5 % for A. marginale. ...
  • Heartwater : Past, Present and Future. Workshop (1986 : Kruger National Park, South Africa); Bezuidenhout, J. Dürr; Bigalke, R.D. (Published by the Government Printer, Pretoria., 1987)
    Heartwater has been transmitted experimentally by 12 Amblyomma species. Their importance depends on the extent of their distribution, adaptation to domestic stock and their efficacy as vectors. Except for one report of ...
  • Heartwater : Past, Present and Future. Workshop (1986 : Kruger National Park, South Africa); Walker, Jane B.; Olwage, A.; Bigalke, R.D. (Published by the Government Printer, Pretoria., 1987)
    Twelve species of Amblyomma are presently known to be capable of transmitting Cowdria ruminantium. Of these A. variegatum is the most important and widely distributed vector in Africa. It has also extended its range ...
