Climate Change and Infectious Diseases: From Evidence to a Predictive Framework
TLDR
This review highlights research progress and gaps that have emerged during the past decade and develops a predictive framework that integrates knowledge from ecophysiology and community ecology with modeling approaches to mitigate the impacts of climate-driven disease emergence.
Ecological Consequences of Sea-Ice Decline
TLDR
After a decade with nine of the lowest arctic sea-ice minima on record, including the historically low minimum in 2012, this work synthesizes recent developments in the study of ecological responses to sea- ice decline to assign clearer attribution to sea ice as a primary driver of such dynamics.
The prevalence of intestinal parasites in dogs and cats in Calgary, Alberta.
TLDR
This study will help veterinarians to better plan diagnostic and preventative strategies with regard to companion animal intestinal parasites.
Evaluation and delivery of domestic animal health services in remote communities in the Northwest Territories: A case study of status and needs.
TLDR
Owners and youth showed a range of attitudes toward dogs and supported improved domestic animal health services and future services need to build on existing programs and collaborate with communities to ensure relevance, ownership, and sustainability.
Dogs as Sources and Sentinels of Parasites in Humans and Wildlife, Northern Canada
A minimum of 11 genera of parasites, including 7 known or suspected to cause zoonoses, were detected in dogs in 2 northern Canadian communities. Dogs in remote settlements receive minimal veterinary
Metabolic approaches to understanding climate change impacts on seasonal host-macroparasite dynamics.
TLDR
Host-macroparasite models are linked with the Metabolic Theory of Ecology, providing a mechanistic framework that allows integrating multiple nonlinear environmental effects to estimate parasite fitness under novel conditions, and thus, whether climate change leads to range contraction or may permit a range expansion.
Crossing the Interspecies Barrier: Opening the Door to Zoonotic Pathogens
This research was funded by EU FP7 grant ANTIGONE (#278976). The funders had no role in study design, data collection and analysis, decision to publish, or preparation of the manuscript.
