Factors associated with the rapid emergence of zoonotic Bartonella infections.
The factors associated with the emergence of these zoonotic pathogens, including better diagnostic tools and methods to identify these fastidious bacteria, host immunosuppression, the interaction of co-infection by several infectious agents that may enhanced the pathogenecity of these bacteria, increased outdoor activity leading to exposure to wildlife reservoirs or vectors, poverty and low income associated with infestation by various ectoparasites, and finally the dispersal of Bartonellae around the world are reviewed.

Pets represent a large reservoir for human infection and can be a source of infection for humans and animals alike.
Ecological fitness and strategies of adaptation of Bartonella species to their hosts and vectors☆
Bacterial type IV secretion systems, which are supra-molecular transporters ancestrally related to bacterial conjugation systems, represent crucial pathogenicity factors that have contributed to a radial expansion of the Bartonella lineage in nature by facilitating adaptation to unique mammalian hosts.

Members of the genus Bartonella are maintained in many domesticated and wild animal hosts, and although these organisms have been implicated occasionally in illnesses, proving a causative role is difficult.
Epidemiology of Bartonella infection in domestic cats in France.
Bartonella spp. isolated from wild and domestic ruminants in North America.
Findings indicate potential for inter- and intraspecies transmission among ruminants, as well as risk that these Bartonella spp.

It is suggested that Hippoboscidae play a role in the transmission of Bartonella among ruminants and the presence of Bartonesella DNA in all samples suggest a symbiotic association between Bart onella and M. ovinus.
