Hantaviruses are transmitted by rodents producing the hantavirus pulmonary syndrome (HPS) in the Americas. Today, no human cases of HPS have been reported in Mexico in spite of similar environmental conditions with Central America and the USA where several cases have occurred. To understand the current situation of hantaviruses in Mexico and the pu...
Recent models suggest a relationship exists between community diversity and pathogen prevalence, the proportion of individuals in a population that are infected by a pathogen, with most inferences tied to assemblage structure. Two contrasting outcomes of this relationship have been proposed: the “dilution effect” and the “amplification effect.” Sma...
Leptospires are widespread spirochete bacteria that infect mammals, including rodents and humans. We investigated the presence of Leptospira antibodies in two species of rodents from San Pedro River Basin (SPRB) in northwestern Mexico as part of the black-tailed prairie dog (Cynomys ludovicianus) monitoring plan and the North American beaver (Casto...
In order to assess the influence of habitat type on the abundance and distribution of hantavirus reservoir hosts and on the prevalence of hantavirus antibodies, we compared communities of small mammals among three dominant habitats in northwestern Mexico (grassland with prairie dogs colonies, grassland without prairie dogs colonies and mesquite shr...
