    Vertical distribution of the Ixodes ricinus tick, tick-borne encephalitis virus (TBEV) and Borrelia burgdorferi s.l. was studied in Jeseníky Mts. Altogether 1,253 specimens of all tick stages (607 larvae, 614 nymphs, 8 females and 24 males) were collected at altitudes 990–1,300 m a.s.l. Altogether 1,207 ticks (8 females, 24 males, 568 nymphs and 607 larvae) were tested for the presence of TBEV and B. burgdorferi s.l. None of the samples contained TBEV, 35 samples (6% of adult ticks, 5% of nymphs, 0.7% of larvae) were positive for B. burgdorferi s.l. The most prevalent genospecies were B. afzelii (44%), B. garinii (28%), less frequent were B. burgdorferi sensu stricto (5%), B. valaisiana (3%). The number of ticks and presence of all developmental stages demonstrate occurence of viable local populations. A significant trend of increasing mean air temperatures in the last 3 decades was found at all analyzed meteorological stations (3 in Jeseníky Mts. and 8 stations in other mountains).
