Evolutionary Ecology of Infectious Diseases

Does the pelagic trophic network mediate vertebrate mycobacteriosis?

How does climate change affect the risk of Mycobacterium ulcerans epidemics in humans and animals?

"Understanding and controlling emerging infectious diseases before they reach epidemic proportions is important for preventing devastating effects on human health, promoting animal welfare, and improving species conservation. Discovering new interactions between disease-causing organisms, where they live, and the other microbes living with them provides insight into the basic understanding of how diseases emerge and spread."
