The evolution of host susceptibility or resistance has important consequences for the evolution of parasite virulence, population dynamics of both host and parasite populations and, where appropriate, for the development of control programs of the related parasitosis. Sarcoptic mange in wildlife is a stimulating model to study the complex relationships between host genetics (MHC), phenotype (immunophenotype) and life history, and a range of "new" (Sarcoptes mites usually amongst them) and "old" associated pathogens. Objective of the study is i) to carry out the molecular genetic characterization - by means of microsatellite markers - of the infrapopulations of mites deriving from scabietic chamois (R.rupicapra e R.pyrenaica) and, for comparison, from other wild and domestic ruminant hosts, sympatric and non-sympatric ii) standardize a universal (for human, domestic and wild animals) Sarcoptes real time qPCR-based diagnostic method.
