About this book

Global Perspectives of the Transmission of Zoonotic RNA Viruses from Wild Animal Species to Humans: Zoonotic, Epizootic, and Anthropogenic Transmission Viral Pathogens elaborates on the current knowledge surrounding the transmission of zoonotic RNA viruses from different wild animal species to humans, including updates on the reverse transmission of pathogens to humans across the globe, with coverage of rodents, pigs, birds and primates. This reference goes beyond the phenomena occurring in African and American regions to provide further study of zoonotic pathogens from the entire world, including various parts of Asia such as India.

The book comprehensively covers new knowledge on many diverse wild primate species for a global perspective on the phenomena of cross-species transmissions of pathogenic RNA viruses. Against the backdrop of the current global COVID-19 pandemic, this reference helps solve the problem of incomplete knowledge of the global epidemiology of zoonotic RNA viruses. RNA viruses have pandemic, epidemic and epizootic potentials caused by Influenza viruses, Avian Influenza viruses, and other infectious viruses.

Biography

Dr Jayashree Seema Nandi has extensive research experience in the field of infectious human viruses including HIV, IAV, HBV and natural infection of wild Indian primate species, which involves fieldwork to collect blood samples from wild simians and laboratory-based research. She was among the first three authors worldwide to recognize the presence of Unintegrated DNA of HIV-1 as a molecular marker for HIV/AIDS in the early 1990s. She is responsible for the identification of 5 novel viruses including HIV-1-like Indian SIVs, and IAV-like influenza virus naturally infecting wild Indian primates.
