The relationship between wild animals, domesticated animals and humans in regards to disease and health is receiving a great deal of attention. Disease in humans and domesticated animals is related to disease in wild animals; animal disease can have an effect on nature conservation.
The book does not pretend to be a reference work on pathophysiology, yet it offers both an overview of diseases occurring in wild animals and a bit of insight into the complexity of illness and health.
This book is of interest for veterinary and human health professionals, ecologists and population biologists.
