Research exploring use of the sylvatic
plague vaccine on a broader scale continues with the help of private landowners and tribal, state and federal partners in an effort to promote conservation of grassland habitats and wildlife.
Foci of the Main Vector of Chagas Disease Triatoma infestans: Threats to the Vector Elimination Campaign?
Documented cases of human death from sylvatic
plague in Canada demonstrate the risk posed by contact with infected wildlife.
Coyotes could serve as sylvatic
definitive hosts in regions of the northeastern USA and Canada where wolves have previously been extirpated or were historically absent (Sweatman 1952), thus enabling the local life cycle.
cruzi, in particular, is likely to remain endemic in sylvatic
hosts despite spraying and insect control efforts.
plague is still a threat, and ranchers still don't want too many prairie dogs on their land.

These mosquitoes have typically sylvatic

plague, a disease that was inadvertently introduced from overseas via flea-infested rats.
ovallesi from different geographical origins and adapted to different ecological conditions--a laboratory population and a sylvatic
population, by means of geometric morphometry, analysis of the protein profile of the salivary glands and an assessment of the presence of anti-saliva protein in human sera subjected to the saliva of laboratory L.
