“…For only one pathogen, Theileria, was there any main effect of precipitation on number of infected rodents per hectare. This finding is consistent with prior analyses of ectoparasites in this region, which failed to find a strong effect of precipitation on prevalence and intensity of small mammal fleas that transmit many of the pathogen taxa examined in this study [74], and consistent with results of other regional studies on these tick-borne diseases in East Africa [78]. …”

“…In comparison, pastoral land use, one of the most regionally and globally widespread types of land-use change [20,76], exerted little if any effect on density of infected animals. Given that prior studies have shown that land use has little effect on the density of fleas per animal in this system [74,77], this likely correlates fairly directly to landscape-level risk, at least for flea-borne pathogens.…”

“…Moreover, numerous intrinsic and extrinsic factors have been shown to impact species diversity or abundance of fleas, including (1) host community diversity (Maher and Timm , Young et al. ), (2) host body condition (Eads et al. ), (3) host density (Krasnov et al.…”

“…The modification of species assemblages resulting from disrupted trophic networks can affect parasite dynamics via cascade effects such as increasing contact rates between competent reservoirs and vectors (Young et al, 2014). This is important to consider from a public health perspective, since species linked to zoonotic diseases may be positively affected by anthropogenic disturbance, such as habitat fragmentation (Rubio, Ávila-Flores & Suzán, 2014), defaunation (Young et al, 2015), or land-use change (McCauley et al, 2015). An increase in host ranges due to altered suites of niche conditions may trigger new meta-community arrays (i.e., local communities linked by dispersal of a number of interacting species), thereby benefiting long-range parasite dispersal (Suzán et al, 2015).…”
