Abstract

Adult tick climbing responses to climate, under different canopy conditions, of R. sanguineus and R. bursa, were studied under natural conditions in the Ebro mid valley (north-eastern Spain), in the time period of their normal activity. The only factors that effectively modulated position were temperature and sun intensity, with relative humidity having a minor effect when canopy conditions allowed a low atmospheric saturation deficit.
