Ticks (Ixodida) are parasitic arachnids, typically 3 to 5 mm long, part of the superorder Parasitiformes.Along with mites, they constitute the subclass Acari.Ticks are external parasites, living by feeding on the blood of mammals, birds, and sometimes reptiles and amphibians.
Larvae, also known as 'seed ticks' and sometimes 'grass ticks', emerge from the eggs and move towards lateral branches, and across grassy areas during humid weather in order to find and attach to their host. Larvae undergo 7–44 days of hardening and then climb vegetation (e.g. the tips of leaves), from where they attach to a passing host.
Nomenclature. The name Ricinus is a Latin word for tick; the seed is so named because it has markings and a bump at the end that resemble certain ticks.The genus Ricinus also exists in zoology, and designates insects (not ticks) which are parasites of birds; this is possible because the names of animals and plants are governed by different nomenclature codes.
Bidens is a genus of flowering plants in the aster family, Asteraceae.The common names beggarticks, black jack, burr marigolds, cobbler's pegs, Spanish needles, stickseeds, tickseeds and tickseed sunflowers refer to the fruits of the plants, most of which are bristly and barbed, with two sharp pappi at the end.
Lyme disease, also known as Lyme borreliosis, is an infectious disease caused by the Borrelia bacterium which is spread by ticks. The most common sign of infection is an expanding red rash, known as erythema migrans, that appears at the site of the tick bite about a week after it occurred.
Animals swallow fruit (including seeds): they digest the soft fruit, but the seeds come out in their droppings. In some rainforests , almost 90% of tree species are dispersed by animals. Animals like bats – for instance, the short-tailed fruit bat in South America – can scatter up to 60,000 seeds in one night.
Seed vigor is a measure of the quality of seed, and involves the viability of the seed, the germination percentage, germination rate and the strength of the seedlings produced.  The germination percentage is simply the proportion of seeds that germinate from all seeds subject to the right conditions for growth.
A seed is the part of a seed plant which can grow into a new plant. It is a reproductive structure which disperses, and can survive for some time. A typical seed includes three basic parts: (1) an embryo, (2) a supply of nutrients for the embryo, and (3) a seed coat.
