Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
This dissertation is an epidemiological study of the
effects of hydatid disease (Echinococcosis species) on the human and animal populations of
California. The anthropological approach that is taken in this work is addressed to
determining social and cultural factors which can affect the interaction between man and
animals and these are considered in conjunction with other ecological variables. In
addition to presenting detailed information on the life cycle of Echinococcosis species and
its transmission from sheep to dogs to man, the author discusses various aspects of the
sheep herding industry, Basque ethnoveterinary practices, immigration of the Basques from
Europe to California, and a brief summary of their ethnography.
