Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Internal medicine
  • Tick

Her main research concerns Virology, Tick, Veterinary medicine, Amblyomma americanum and Ehrlichia canis. Her Virology study incorporates themes from Serology, Ehrlichiosis, Borrelia burgdorferi and Canis. Her Ehrlichiosis research includes themes of Transmission and Ehrlichia chaffeensis.

Within one scientific family, Susan E. Little focuses on topics pertaining to Zoology under Tick, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Wildlife, Infestation, Vector and Livestock. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Helminths, Incidence and Theileria. In Ehrlichia canis, Susan E. Little works on issues like Ehrlichia, which are connected to Anaplasma phagocytophilum.

Her most cited work include:

  • Prevalence and geographic distribution of Dirofilaria immitis, Borrelia burgdorferi, Ehrlichia canis, and Anaplasma phagocytophilum in dogs in the United States: results of a national clinic-based serologic survey. (198 citations)
  • The increasing recognition of rickettsial pathogens in dogs and people (175 citations)
  • Heat treatment prior to testing allows detection of antigen of Dirofilaria immitis in feline serum (154 citations)

What are the main themes of her work throughout her whole career to date?

Susan E. Little mainly investigates Virology, Tick, Veterinary medicine, Amblyomma americanum and Ehrlichia. Susan E. Little interconnects Odocoileus, Ehrlichia canis and Ehrlichiosis in the investigation of issues within Virology. Her studies in Ehrlichiosis integrate themes in fields like Dirofilariasis and Dirofilaria immitis.

Her work in Tick addresses subjects such as Zoology, which are connected to disciplines such as Hepatozoon, CATS and Vector. Her Veterinary medicine research includes elements of Parasitology, Seroprevalence and Cytauxzoonosis. Her studies deal with areas such as Immunology, Babesia, Anaplasma phagocytophilum, Canis and Anaplasma as well as Ehrlichia.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Virology (38.54%)
  • Tick (29.17%)
  • Veterinary medicine (26.04%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Zoology (18.75%)
  • Tick (29.17%)
  • CATS (11.46%)

In recent papers she was focusing on the following fields of study:

Susan E. Little focuses on Zoology, Tick, CATS, Veterinary medicine and Parasitology. Her study in the fields of Haemaphysalis longicornis, Dermacentor albipictus, Dermacentor and Ixodidae under the domain of Zoology overlaps with other disciplines such as Cytochrome c oxidase subunit I. Her study in Tick is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Nematode, Flea control and Immunology.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Transmission, Pathology, Dirofilaria immitis antigen and Plasma samples in addition to CATS. Her work deals with themes such as Trichuris, Trichuris vulpis and Ancylostoma, which intersect with Veterinary medicine. Her Ehrlichia study is related to the wider topic of Virology.

Between 2016 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Multistate Infestation with the Exotic Disease–Vector Tick Haemaphysalis longicornis — United States, August 2017–September 2018 (78 citations)
  • Prime detection of Dirofilaria immitis: understanding the influence of blocked antigen on heartworm test performance. (29 citations)
  • Show us your ticks: a survey of ticks infesting dogs and cats across the USA. (15 citations)

In her most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Internal medicine
  • Ecology
  • Disease

Her scientific interests lie mostly in Tick, Immunology, Ixodidae, Veterinary medicine and Dirofilaria immitis. Her Tick research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Zoology, Flea control, Vector, Wildlife and Infestation. Susan E. Little has researched Immunology in several fields, including False Negative Reactions and Parasitology.

Her work on Dermacentor variabilis, Amblyomma americanum, Rhipicephalus sanguineus and Ixodes scapularis as part of her general Ixodidae study is frequently connected to Otobius megnini, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science. Her Veterinary medicine study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Lyme disease and Seroprevalence. The various areas that Susan E. Little examines in her Dirofilaria immitis study include Clinical research, Virology, Ehrlichia, Borrelia burgdorferi and Dirofilariasis.
