About the Edition

The habitat of tsetse fly depends upon climatic conditions, host availability and land cover characteristics. In this paper, the Land Cover Classification System, developed by FAO and UNEP, is proposed as a tool for harmonizing cover mapping to support tsetse and trypanosomiasis intervention, research and control. --Publisher"s description.

African animal trypanosomiasis (AAT; tsetse disease, tsetse fly disease, African animal nagana) is a disease complex caused by infection with T. congolense, T. vivax, or T. brucei brucei, either singly or in combination. In East Africa, T. congolense is the most important cause of AAT. Cattle, sheep, goats, horses, and pigs develop. Geographic Distribution of African Trypanosomiasis by Country [11] The distribution of African trypanosomiasis is completely linked to the range of its vector, the tsetse fly. Due to the tsetse fly’s climatic restrictions the disease is restricted between the 14 th latitude north and the 29 th latitude south on the African continent. [12].

The present study includes both a review of historical datasets on tsetse flies and bovine trypanosomosis, as well as the results of recent, targeted field investigations. The review includes both published and unpublished datasets collected in Sudan from onwards. The country has committed to eradicate tsetse and trypanosomiasis in the framework of the African Union coordinated Pan-African Tsetse and Trypanosomiasis Eradication Campaign (AU-PATTEC), a decision (AHG/ (XXXVI)) by African Heads of State and Government during the 36th Ordinary Summit of the OAU, Lome, Togo held in July Cited by: 1.
