The causative bacterium of Lyme disease, Borrelia burgdorferi, expanded from an undetected human pathogen into the etiologic agent of the most common vector-borne disease in the United States over the last several decades. Systematic field collections of the tick vector reveal increases in the geographic range and population size of B. burgdorferi that coincided with increases in human Lyme disease incidence across New York State. Here we investigate the impact of environmental features on the...
