Abstract

PAULAN, Silvana de C. et al. Spatial distribution of canine Visceral Leishmaniasis in Ilha Solteira, São Paulo, Brazil. Eng. Agríc. [online]. 2012, vol.32, n.4, pp. 765-774. ISSN 0100-6916.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-69162012000400016.

Visceral Leishmaniasis (VL) is caused by protozoan of genus Leishmania and transmitted by sand flies of genus Lutzomyia, which has been adapted to the peridomicile environment where dogs are their mainly food source, increasing the risk for human cases. In this study, techniques of geoprocessing and spatial statistics were utilized as a contribution to understanding the epidemiological dynamics of VL in the urban area of Ilha Solteira, SP.

Keywords : geoprocessing; sand fly; epidemiology; spatial statistics.
