  • Revue scientifique et technique

TLDR
Although fox mange occurs as an epizootic in local populations, the number of foxes has increased again in many parts of Sweden and the duration of the disease before death due to emaciation has been shown experimentally to be over 90 days. Expand
Survey of Campylobacter species, VTEC 01 57 and Salmonella species in Swedish wildlife
TLDR
Samples collected from 791 wild animals shot during hunting were examined for verocytotoxin-producing Escherichia coli, and thermophilic Campylobacter and Salmonella species, and VTEC 0157 was not isolated from any of the animals. Expand

Surveillance and monitoring of wildlife diseases.
TLDR
The authors conclude that wildlife disease monitoring programmes that are integrated within national animal health surveillance infrastructures should have the capacity to respond promptly to the detection of unusual wildlife mortality and to institute epizootiological research into new and emerging wildlife diseases.

DESCRIPTIVE EPIDEMIOLOGY OF ROE DEER MORTALITY IN SWEDEN
TLDR
The distribution of causes of death reported in this study differ from previous works in Sweden in that infectious and parasitic diseases were more common than winter starvation. Expand
Wild birds of declining European species are dying from a thiamine deficiency syndrome
TLDR
It is proposed that the mortality and breeding failure of wild birds in the Baltic Sea area are part of a thiamine deficiency syndrome, which may have contributed significantly to declines in many bird populations during the last decades. Expand
Epidemiology and diagnosis of the European brown hare syndrome in Scandinavian countries: a review.
TLDR
A virus related to the viral haemorrhagic disease of rabbits virus has been shown to cause the European brown hare syndrome, which is today widespread in Denmark and southern Sweden. Expand
Serological Survey of Toxoplasma gondii Infection in Free-ranging Eurasian Lynx (Lynx lynx) from Sweden
TLDR
