About this book

Language: French

The current environmental crisis is accompanied by a crisis of biodiversity loss, and an epidemiological crisis marked by emergence of new infectious diseases from wild and domestic animals. What are the links between biodiversity and transmission of pathogens? Is biodiversity loss accompanied by an increase in infectious disease risks? Conversely, do wildlife and wider biological systems undergo second-hand antibiotic use? Are services provided by ecosystems, such as pollination provided by bees, threatened by pesticides?

Summary in French:
La crise environnementale actuelle s’accompagne d’une crise de la biodiversité, et d’une crise épidémiologique marquée par des émergences de maladies infectieuses nouvelles issues de la faune sauvage et domestique. Existerait-il des liens entre biodiversité et transmission des pathogènes? Les pertes de biodiversité s’accompagnent-elles d’une augmentation des risques sanitaires infectieux?

A l’inverse, la faune sauvage et la biodiversité au sens large subissent-elles l’usage des antibiotiques? Les services rendus par les écosystèmes comme la pollinisation assurée par les abeilles sont-ils menacés par les pesticides? La faune sauvage est-elle devenue, à son corps défendant, sentinelle de la qualité sanitaire de notre environnement?
