the black-legged tick Ixodes scapularis is the vector for the Lyme disease spirochete Borrelia burgdorferi

Lineage: Eukaryota[8697]; Metazoa[4225]; Ecdysozoa[1838]; Arthropoda[1688]; Chelicerata[65]; Arachnida[60]; Acari[38]; Parasitiformes[17]; Ixodida[11]; Ixodoidea[11]; Ixodidae[9]; Ixodinae[3]; Ixodes[3]; Ixodes scapularis[1]
Ticks are one of the most significant vectors of human and animal pathogens. Ixodes scapularis (the black-legged tick) transmits Lyme disease, human granulocytic anaplasmosis, babesiosis, and other pathogens to humans and other species. Ixodes scapularis is estimated to have diverged from other Arthropods such as Drosophila melanogaster More...
