Welcome to The Hard Ticks (Ixodidae) Information Site

Dear Visitor,

Welcome to our website where we try to compile information on the hard ticks of the World. Although numerous publications on the Ixodidae have been presented to the scientific community, they are usually focused in one or at best, just a few aspects of tick biology; whether this is taxanomy, ecology, biogeography, disease transmision etc. In this website we try to bring all of this scattered information together on a species-reference level and provide a detailed accout for every species. At all times we provide the required citations.
