Bartonellae of the Namaqua rock mouse, Micaelamys namaquensis (Rodentia: Muridae) from South Africa
The aim of this study was to determine Bartonella prevalence and diversity in Namaqua rock mice, Micaelamys namaquensis, a species endemic to South Africa, which can attain pest status. A total of 100 heart samples ...
A mathematical epidemiological model of gram-negative Bartonella bacteria: Does differential ectoparasite load fully explain the differences in infection prevalence of Rattus rattus and R. norvegicus?
(Taylor & Francis, 2012)
We postulate that the large difference in infection prevalence, 24% versus 5%, in R. norvegicus and R. rattus, respectively, between these two co-occurring host species may be due to differences in ectoparasite and potential ...
