Ecological disturbances exert an influence on the emergence and proliferation of malaria and zoonotic parasitic diseases, including, Leishmaniasis, cryptosporidiosis, giardiasis, trypanosomiasis, schistosomiasis, filariasis, onchocerciasis, and loiasis. Each environmental change, whether occurring as a natural phenomenon or through human intervention, changes the ecological balance and context within which disease hosts or vectors and parasites breed, develop, and transmit disease. Each species… Expand
Environmental changes and emerging vector-borne diseases: a review.
TLDR
This paper provides an overview of the distribution, reasons of emergence or reemergence of the important vector-borne diseases throughout the world. Expand
Deforestation and Water Borne Parasitic Zoonoses
Disease emergence or re-emergence is often the consequence of the societal and technological change and manifests frequently in an unpredictable manner. It has been estimated that among emergingExpand

TLDR
Evidence regarding potential effects of ‘system changes’ on parasite transmission from wild host–parasite systems is highlighted and synthesized to support robust predictions of altered parasite dynamics in a rapidly changing world. Expand
Environmental change and the dynamics of parasitic diseases in the Amazon.
TLDR
An interdisciplinary approach and an integrated, international surveillance are needed, to manage the environmentally-driven changes in the Amazonian parasitic diseases in the near future. Expand
Ecological Effects on the Dynamics of West Nile Virus and Avian Plasmodium: The Importance of Mosquito Communities and Landscape
TLDR
The ecological factors potentially affecting the transmission of two mosquito-borne pathogens circulating naturally between birds and mosquitoes, namely, West Nile virus (WNV) and the avian malaria parasites of the genus Plasmodium are discussed. Expand
Drivers for the emergence and re-emergence of vector-borne protozoal and bacterial diseases.
TLDR
A coordinated global approach for the prevention of vector-borne diseases should be implemented by international organizations and governmental agencies in collaboration with research institutions. Expand
Mosquito-borne Diseases as a Consequence of Land Use Change
Human modification of the natural environment continues to create habitats in which mosquitoes, vectors of a wide variety of human and animal pathogens, thrive if unabated with an enormous potentialExpand

TLDR
The potential of the recent emergence of Leishmania infection in hitherto unaffected regions to become a public health concern if no disease management is achieved is examined. Expand

TLDR

TLDR
A taxonomy of the human environment and of its components is set out as a basis for understanding the complex determinants of human diseases in the tropics, with emphasis on vector-borne diseases, especially malaria. Expand
Arthropods as disease vectors in a changing environment.
TLDR
The prospects of climatic warming, urbanization and vegetation changes have the potential to materially affect global patterns of vector-borne diseases and research needs are identified and response strategies are suggested in the context of the ever-increasing impact of human populations and industrial activity on the environment. Expand
Deforestation, hunting and the ecology of microbial emergence
TLDR
Examining factors which influence human acquisition of completely novel microbes finds that certain synergies, for example between logging activities, hunting of nonhuman primates, and international travel are likely to increase the frequency at which novel microbes successfully enter into the global human population.

TLDR
Environmental changes, introduced and fostered by successful malaria eradication, may cause an anopheline species, potentially capable of malaria transmission, but originally inactive and harmless as a vector, to alter its feeding habits and thereby renew transmission. Expand
Chagas' disease in the Brazilian Amazon. I--A short review.
TLDR
Risks that Chagas' disease will become endemic to the Amazon appear to be linked to the transposition of the wild cycle to the domestic cycle in that area or to transfer of the domestic Cycle from endemic areas to theAmazon. Expand

TLDR
The question as whether keeping livestock diverts biting away from people and reduces diseases such as malaria--that is zooprophylaxis, or whether the presence of cattle actually increases biting populations is discussed. Expand

TLDR
The authors describe bacterial, viral and parasitic diseases which are emerging in production settings and discuss the currently-known diseases which may affect the viability of an intensive production facility. Expand
Ecologic observations on anopheline vectors of malaria in the Brazilian Amazon.
TLDR
The timing of feeding activities was found to vary in areas altered by human intervention and also depended on the time of the year and climatic conditions, which should help in designing appropriate malaria control measures. Expand
