e-infrastructure Roadmap for Open Science in Agriculture

A bibliometric study

The e-ROSA project seeks to build a shared vision of a future sustainable e-infrastructure for research and education in agriculture in order to promote Open Science in this field and as such contribute to addressing related societal challenges. In order to achieve this goal, e-ROSA’s first objective is to bring together the relevant scientific communities and stakeholders and engage them in the process of coelaboration of an ambitious, practical roadmap that provides the basis for the design and implementation of such an e-infrastructure in the years to come.

This website highlights the results of a bibliometric analysis conducted at a global scale in order to identify key scientists and associated research performing organisations (e.g. public research institutes, universities, Research & Development departments of private companies) that work in the field of agricultural data sources and services.

Parasites and parasitic diseases of the Indian elephant, mithun and yak : An overview


The Indian elephant, mithun and yak are utility animals. Each of them is a valuable natural resource and important constituent of India's unique biodiversity. However, their numbers have declined and their existence is facing several challenges, of which a major one is parasites and diseases caused by them. While much of the information on the parasites of Indian elephant dates back to the pre-mechanization British era, the setting up of dedicated Research Centres on Mithun and Yak by the Indian Council of Agricultural Research, has resulted in generation of considerable research data and regular flow of information in recent years. The elephant is unique regarding most of its internal (and a few external) parasites not being shared with other livestock hosts. As per updated information, the Indian elephant is parasitized by 39 helminths, made up by 8 trematodes including the most pathogenic Fasciola jacksoni, 2 cestodes and 29 nematodes including 3 filariid worms; among protozoa, only Trypanosoma, Babesia and ciliates are known; arthropods include the stomach bot Cobboldia, the louse Haematomyzus and atleast 4 genera of ticks. The mithun, being phylogenetically related to cattle, seems to share the same set of internal and external parasites. To date 12 nematode genera, 6 trematode genera and 2 cestodes have been recorded; protozoa comprised coccidia (8 Eimeria species identified so far), Giardia, Cryptosporidium and Balantidium. In addition, serological evidence of Toxoplasma gondii and Neospora caninum exists. Of arthropods, only ticks are reported. The parasites of yak are not fully explored. So far 11 nematode genera, 7 trematode genera and 3 cestodes (2 of them only as cysts) are on record. Among protozoa, only Eimeria (2 species identified) and in arthropods, warbles (Hypoderma), 6 genera of ticks, louse, flea and biting flies have been reported in India.
