Morphological changes Hyalomma asiaticum male reproductive system developmental stages

Abstract

Hyalomma asiaticum is considered as the vector tick species which can carry and transmit Theileria annulata, Anaplasma marginale and Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever virus to humans and animals, causing a great risk to animal husbandry and posing a threat to public health as well as economic losses. In the present study, we investigated the morphology and changes of the male reproductive system for this species at different developmental stages.
