Vectors are organisms that are capable of transmitting pathogens between animals and/or humans. Generally, we refer to arthropods when speaking about vectors, including mosquitoes, sand flies, fleas, and ticks.
Vector-borne diseases can affect animals and humans, often being zoonotic diseases, some of which are emerging or neglected diseases. Due to their complex epidemiology, it is essential to determine the distribution and biology of disease vectors in order to implement cost-effective control measures that reduce the impact of these diseases on human and animal health.
In this Special Issue, we welcome manuscripts concerning arthropods of medical and veterinary importance to provide information for appropriate control measures and to promote public awareness.
