Abstract

Parasite presence in any ecosystem generates complex navigating webs (Parasite-NW) within the system, through which parasites move from one to another host. The appropriate assimilation of parasite navigating web is pivotal for a better understanding of pathogen flow in the ecosystem, with implications for disease control. Sarcoptes mite has been approached from medical, veterinary, entomological, physiological and, recently, molecular sides, to understand its epidemiological navigating web between isolates from different hosts and geographical regions. The obtained conclusions are still a matter of debate. Sarcoptes navigating web (Sarcoptes-NW) is intricate and uncertain, with unexplainable pathogenic flow. In this review we summarize by which routes, under what conditions and at what levels the Sarcoptes mite moves among its hosts.
