The Sarcoptidosis of Wild Mammals
Author of the article:LI Chunyan, YANG Guangyou*
Author's Workplace:College of Veterinary Medicine, Sichuan Agricultural University, Chengdu 611130, China
Key Words:Sarcoptes scabiei; wild mammals; epidemiology; biological diversity
Abstract:Sarcoptic mange is a contagious ectoparasitic disease that distributed all around the world, and this may cause high mortality and dramatic decreases in the population size of wild mammals when outbreak, or even threaten the survival of the entire population. In order to provide some references for surveillance, prevention and control of sarcoptidosis in wild mammals in China, this review summarized the epidemiology of this disease regarding the cause of morbidity and mortality and the factor of influence, molecular biology and immunology. Moreover, it can also promote the protection of wild mammals and biological diversity in China.
