Climate Change Research Mentioned in Story on Ticks

A Portland Press Herald report on the outlook for ticks this spring included a reference to UMaine Climate Change Institute research. Although reported cases of Lyme disease in Aroostook County are low, the article said, the Maine Medical Center’s Vector-borne Disease Laboratory in South Portland has used a 2011 model by the Climate Change Institute to predict that by 2050, a warming climate will lead to an increase in deer ticks throughout the state, even in northern areas.
