There are huge numbers of wild animals distributed throughout the world and the diversity of wildlife species is immense. Each landscape and habitat has a kaleidoscope of niches supporting an enormous variety of vertebrate and invertebrate species, and each species or taxon supports an even more impressive array of macro- and micro-parasites. Infectious pathogens that originate in wild animals have become increasingly important throughout the world in recent decades, as they have had… Expand

TLDR
A synthesis of the information available on selected zoonoses of wildlife origin is given, with special reference to sylvatic tick-borne zoonose in North-western Italy. Expand

TLDR
A synthesis of the information available on selected zoonoses of wildlife origin is given, with special reference to sylvatic tick-borne zoonose in North-western Italy. Expand
[Zoonoses with wildlife reservoirs: a threat to public health and the economy].
TLDR
The intensification and accelerations of the anthropogenic deterioration of the biosphere in Chile, as results of the unrestricted utilization of natural resources and global climate change, suggests that emergence of new zoonoses in the near future will lead to important public health and economic problems. Expand
Review Article ROLE OF NEGLECTED WILDLIFE DISEASE ECOLOGY IN EMERGENCE AND RESURGENCE OF PARASITIC DISEASES
TLDR
Advances in technology, especially molecular techniques, surveillance models and advance monitoring systems are enabling easy diagnosis and study of the flow of the parasites between the hosts, which surely will enhance knowledge of host specificity. Expand
The spread of pathogens through trade in wildlife.
TLDR
The role of wildlife in the ecology of infectious disease, the staggering magnitude of the movement of wild animals and products across international borders in trade, the pathways by which they move, and the growing body of risk assessments from a multitude of disciplines are reviewed. Expand
Pathogens of Vertebrate Animals as Invasive Species: Insights from South Africa
The study of disease organisms as invasive alien species has not received a great deal of attention in the field of invasion science. Introduced pathogens can have profound effects on livingExpand
Role of India’s wildlife in the emergence and re-emergence of zoonotic pathogens, risk factors and public health implications
TLDR
It is indicated that wild animals play an important role in the emergence and re-emergence of zoonotic pathogens and provides brief summaries of the zoonosis diseases that have occurred in wild animals in India. 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
Wild deer as a source of infection for livestock and humans in the UK.
TLDR
The need for a monitoring strategy for wildlife diseases, in particular infections in wild deer, in the UK is highlighted, so that with a warming climate exotic diseases may play a role in future UK livestock and wildlife disease management. Expand
Wildlife-associated zoonotic diseases in some southern African countries in relation to game meat safety: a review.
TLDR
Examples of zoonotic diseases that have occurred in wild animals in the past, their relevance and risk have been summarised and should function as a quick reference guide for wildlife veterinarians, ecologists, farmers, hunters, slaughter staff, processors and public health professionals. Expand

Emerging infectious diseases in wildlife.
TLDR
Those who study and diagnose diseases of wildlife must be alert for emerging diseases so that the impact of such diseases on wild animals, domestic animals and humans can be minimised. Expand
Bat lyssavirus infections.
TLDR
Methods for the diagnosis of bat lyssavirus infections in bats and terrestrial mammals and measures for the prevention and control of these diseases are similar to those for rabies, although additional innovative methods have been tested, specifically to control vampire bat rabies. Expand
Multiple Ebola Virus Transmission Events and Rapid Decline of Central African Wildlife
TLDR
Recovered carcasses were infected by a variety of Ebola strains, suggesting that Ebola outbreaks in great apes result from multiple virus introductions from the natural host. Expand

TLDR
If the seroreactivity is confirmed by more specific tests, then the Ebola virus serogroup in Africa probably contains an antigenically cross-reactive, enzootic, nonpathogenic agent(s). 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 author provides an account of the discovery of a previously undescribed disease of horses and a description of the studies involved in determining the aetiology of the disease. The causativeExpand
Recent zoonoses caused by influenza A viruses.
TLDR
The evidence strongly suggests that pigs have been involved in interspecies transmission of influenza viruses, particularly the spread of H1N1 viruses to humans, andPhylogenetic studies suggest that aquatic birds could be the source of all influenza A viruses in other species. Expand
Infections by viruses of the families Bunyaviridae and Filoviridae.
TLDR
The Marburg and Ebola viruses of the genus Filovirus are associated with epidemics in Central Africa with high fatality rates in humans; some outbreaks were related to contact with monkeys. Expand
Ehrlichia ewingii Infection in White-Tailed Deer (Odocoileus virginianus)
TLDR
It is suggested that white-tailed deer may be an important reservoir for E. ewingii, a cause of granulocytotropic ehrlichiosis in humans and dogs, and its geographic distribution is expanded to include areas of Kentucky, Georgia, and South Carolina. Expand
A study of the ecology of West Nile virus in Egypt.
TLDR
The main cycle of the virus is probably through mosquitoes and birds in which man may become involved, and there is evidence for believing that the virus over-winters through a process of retarded transmission by the mosquitoes that remain active throughout the colder months, although the possible role of ticks as a reservoir of theirus should be further investigated.
