Emerging infectious diseases, most of which are considered zoonotic in origin, continue to exact a significant toll on society. The origins of major human infectious diseases are reviewed and the factors underlying disease emergence explored. Anthropogenic changes, largely in land use and agriculture, are implicated in the apparent increased frequency of emergence and re-emergence of zoonoses in recent decades. Special emphasis is placed on the pathogen with likely the greatest zoonotic… Expand
Animal board invited review: Risks of zoonotic disease emergence at the interface of wildlife and livestock systems
TLDR
This work proposes strategies to mitigate the risk of emergence and/or re-emergence of prioritized pathogens to prevent future epidemics, and focuses on pathogenic viruses of the Bunyavirales, Coronaviridae, Flaviviridae and Orthomyxoviridae as well as bacterial species. Expand
The study of parasite sharing for surveillance of zoonotic diseases
TLDR
A review of recent advances in the study of parasite sharing, wildlife ecology, and epidemiology that could be extended and incorporated into proactive surveillance frameworks for multi-host infectious diseases. Expand

TLDR
Education and preventive medicine practices can be applied by veterinarians and other health professionals to reduce the risk of contracting a zoonotic disease. Expand
Emergence of Zoonoses at Human-Animal Interface
TLDR
The review will focus on the factors which are contributing to emergence of zoonotic pathogens at human-animal interface. Expand
Pasteurella multocida: from Zoonosis to Cellular Microbiology
TLDR
Recent comparative genomics and molecular pathogenesis studies that have advanced the understanding of the multiple virulence mechanisms employed by Pasteurella species to establish acute and chronic infections are reviewed. Expand
Public Health Concern Due To Emerging and Re-Emerging Zoonoses -
Zoonoses which include emerging and re-emerging zoonoses are still remain a leading cause of high morbidity and mortality in many countries of the world .These diseases constitute the major threatsExpand
Overview of Zoonotic Diseases in Turkey: The One Health Concept and Future Threats.
TLDR
The occurrence of zoonotic diseases in man and animals in Turkey is reviewed in the light of the "One Health" perspective for developing strategies to combat zoonosis. Expand
Zoonoses
Zoonoses are the “diseases and infections that are naturally transmitted between vertebrate animals and man,” as defined in 1951 by the World Health Organization (WHO) Expert Committee onExpand

TLDR
Current issues such as the increasing movement of a variety of animal species, ecological disruption, uncultivatable organisms, and terrorism, all imply that emerging zoonotic diseases will in all probability, not only continue to occur, but will increase in the rate of their emergence. Expand
Ecological sources of zoonotic diseases.
TLDR
It is argued that in the case of zoonotic diseases emerging in livestock, change in agricultural practices has become the dominant factor determining the conditions in whichZoonotic pathogens evolve, spread, and eventually enter the human population. Expand
Emerging zoonoses: crossing the species barrier.
TLDR
The filoviruses and the newer paramyxovirus, Hendra and Nipah, highlight the increasing proclivity of some animal viral agents to infect human populations with devastating results. Expand
Population biology of emerging and re-emerging pathogens.
TLDR
Surveillance is a key defence against emerging pathogens but will often need to be integrated across human, domestic animal and wildlife populations. Expand
The emergence of zoonotic diseases: understanding the impact on animal and human health: workshop summary.
TLDR
The Emergence of Zoonotic Diseases: Understanding the Impact on Animal and Human Health, covers a range of topics, which include an evaluation of the relative importance of zoonotic diseases against the overall backdrop of emerging infections. Expand
The challenge of emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases
Infectious diseases have for centuries ranked with wars and famine as major challenges to human progress and survival. They remain among the leading causes of death and disability worldwide. AgainstExpand
Emerging infectious disease: what are the relative roles of ecology and evolution?
TLDR
In most current epidemics, ecological factors play a more significant role in disease emergence than evolutionary changes in pathogens or hosts, and evolutionary biologists and ecologists have much to offer to the development of strategies for the control of emerging diseases. Expand
Viral Zoonoses – A Threat under Control?
TLDR
This review presents the important examples of zoonotic viruses and discusses the factors playing a key role in the emergence and resurgence of these diseases. Expand
Public health implications of emerging zoonoses.
TLDR
The authors provide a number of examples, including that of the Ebola virus, avian influenza, monkeypox and bovine spongiform encephalopathy, to illustrate the tremendous indirect impact of emerging zoonotic diseases on public health policy and structures and on public perception of health risks.

TLDR
Cross-species viral and other infections are reviewed historically with respect to the evolution of virulence and the concern about iatrogenic enhancement of cross-species transfer by medical procedures akin to xenotransplantation. Expand
