Andrew TVOPathobiology professor Andrew Peregrine and master’s student Christine James are featured in a TVO video on Ontario’s growing tick population.

It’s part of a series, “Climate Watch Shorts,” on the effects of climate change hosted by TVO’s Nam Kiwanuka.

Peregrine teaches clinical parasitology — the diagnosis and management of parasite infections in domestic species – in the Ontario Veterinary College.

He says that climate change, bird migration and the growing deer population all affect the prevalence of ticks in Ontario.
