Biodiversity Loss Affects Global Disease Ecology

Check out this UVM authored paper about how human activity affects biodiversity which then impacts the rates of infectious disease. Implications for health monitoring and conservation planning are discussed. From the article,
"Effectively addressing emerging diseases
requires adequate health infrastructure that recognizes
the environmental, epidemiological, and social drivers of
disease transmission."

Great topic for seminar.
