Keywordsticks climate position in vegetation
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.
