About this book

Increased international trade has led to growing concern about the more rapid transmission of animal diseases, many of which pose a significant threat to livestock in the United States and elsewhere. In this book a diverse group of scientists and practitioners explore the implications of these developments.

The authors examine the connections between vector-borne pathogens and international trade. They describe recent advances in the prevention and control of diseases relative to animals as well as zoonotic disease. Special attention is paid to the eradication of the Bont and other ticks, heartwater disease, bluetongue, and vesicular stomatitis. Finally, implications of these animal diseases are explored in relation to the increases in international trade fostered by GATT and NAFTA.

Topics include strategies for control of tick-borne diseases; diagnosis of hemoparasite infection of cattle; research on bluetongue disease; application of risk assessment to international trade in animals and animal products; preharvest food safety; the role of dogs in the transmission of toxoplasma; and risk assessment of disease transmission by bovine embryo transfer.
