Wild Animals, Biodiversity and Health - What are the Challenges?

Wild Animals, Biodiversity and Health - What are the Challenges?


S. Morand, C. Richomme, F. Moutou

Edition 2014

The current environmental crisis is accompanied by a crisis of the biodiversity and an epidemiological crisis marked by the emergence of new infectious diseases coming from wild and domestic animals. Could there be links between biodiversity and transmission of pathogens? Do biodiversity losses increase infectious health risks? Conversely, are wild animals and the biodiversity in the broadest sense influenced by the use of antibiotics? Are the services rendered by the ecosystems - pollination by bees, for example, - threatened by pesticides? Have wild animals become, reluctantly, a sentinel for the healthiness of our environment?
