Abstract

Following a study of potential vectors of the boutonneuse Fever in the lower Rhône valley, the authors summarize knowledge concerning Rh. turanicus (biogeography, hosts, seasonal dynamics). Using their own work, they emphasize its distribution and ecology in the French mediterranean region: as an exophile species, frequently encountered because of the rich variety of its hosts (domestic and wild) and its adaptability to numerous human biotopes, it probably has a very significant epidemiological role.
