About this book

Ebola virus disease, Zika virus, Lyme disease, bovine tuberculosis, and avian influenza; the study of disease outbreaks or epidemics is inherently fascinating and complex. From the circulation of pathogens in wildlife communities, to spillover events that involve jumping into new species, to stuttering or full-blown pandemics in human populations. Furthermore, it requires an understanding of transmission dynamics at multiple levels and scales: from molecular evolution, immunology, pathology, ecology, and epidemiology. The implications also cross disciplines: biodiversity and conservation, public health policy, globalization, and politics.

Despite a recent explosion of courses on the topic, this is the first textbook to explicitly examine wildlife disease ecology at the human-wildlife interface. Emerging Zoonotic & Wildlife Pathogens is aimed at graduate students and researchers in the fields of disease ecology and veterinary epidemiology, as well as a broader interdisciplinary audience of conservation biologists, public health specialists, and land managers.

Biography

Dan Salkeld is a Research Scientist in the Department of Environmental & Occupational Health, One Health Institute, Colorado State University, USA. His research focuses on the intersection of disease ecology, conservation, and public health, using systems such as bubonic plague and Lyme disease. He has been employed as an academic, a public health biologist, and a conservation research scientist.

Skylar Hopkins is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Applied Ecology, at North Carolina State University, USA. Her research focuses on the intersection of two fields (disease ecology and conservation biology), using a variety of methods, including field sampling, laboratory studies, mathematical modelling, and synthesis science, to design and evaluate conservation and health solutions.

David T.R. Hayman is Professor of Infectious Disease Ecology, Co-Director of the Molecular Epidemiology and Public Health Laboratory (mEpiLab), and Director of the university-wide Infectious Disease Research Centre (IDReC) at Massey University, New Zealand. He has worked on infectious diseases as diverse as measles, rabies, Ebola virus, and white-nose syndrome. He has been employed as both a veterinarian and an academic, and performed applied conservation and public health research for governments and non-governmental organizations.
