Palabras clave:

Ixodes ricinus,Norway, climate changes

Solveig Jore's doctoral research shows that the tick _Ixodes ricinus_ has spread over larger geographical areas in Norway and that climate and environmental changes, access to host animals, and demography affect tick distribution in Norway. Furthermore, local climatic conditions can have a decisive influence on the ability of the tick to spread dangerous viruses. The climate can also play a role in the spread of gastrointestinal infections.
