Prevalence and co-infection of mosquito- and tick-borne pathogens in domestic dogs suspected for canine babesiosis in Lithuania. During the past decade, vector-borne diseases (VBDs) have been continuously spreading in Europe, including Lithuania. VBDs are caused by bacteria, parasites, or viruses transmitted by the bite of hematophagous arthropods (mainly ticks and mosquitoes). Canine vector-borne diseases (CVBDs) are a...

The current status of ticks in Turkey: a 100-year period review from 1916 to 2016. Environmental and bio-ecological changes, some administrative and political mistakes, and global warming seriously affect the behaviors of ticks in Turkey and globally. The global public sensitivity toward tick infestations has increased along with increases in tick-borne diseases (TBDs). Recently,...

Climatic changes and their role in emergence and re-emergence of diseases. Global warming and the associated climate changes are predictable. They are enhanced by burning of fossil fuels and the emission of huge amounts of CO2 gas which resulted in greenhouse effect. It is expected that the average global temperature will increase with 2-5°C in the next decades. As a...

Public health impacts of climate change and adaptation measures in Japan. Climate change is continuing to progress steadily. and without effective greenhouse gas emission controls, the temperature rise at the end of this century is projected to reach roughly 4.3°C, compared to before the Industrial Revolution. Climate change not only results in a rise in average...

Regional rodent-borne infectious diseases in North America: what wilderness medicine providers need to know. Rodents can transmit infectious diseases directly to humans and other animals via bites and exposure to infectious salivary aerosols and excreta. Arthropods infected while blood-feeding on rodents can also transmit rodent-borne pathogens indirectly to humans and animals. Environmental events, such...

West Nile virus is predicted to be more geographically widespread in New York State and Connecticut under future climate change. The effects of climate change on infectious diseases are a topic of considerable interest and discussion. We studied West Nile virus (WNV) in New York (NY) and Connecticut (CT) using a Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) model climate change scenario, which allows us to examine the effects of...


CABI book chapters (your subscription gives you fulltext access to selected chapters)

Climate change: the ultimate one health challenge. This chapter provides an overview of the impacts of climate change and the shared benefits of diverse collaborations to adapt to this important threat to animal, man and environmental health.

Theories and concepts: linking landscapes and health. This book chapter provides an introduction and background information for many of these theories, concluding with practical applications, focusing on evolutionary-based theories (e.g. biophilia hypothesis, naturalistic intelligence, other evolutionary-grounded theories), restorative environment...

Zoonoses. This book chapter focuses on zoonoses that are not transmitted primarily through food. Establishing systematic data collection is the first step to manage zoonoses. Management is complicated by heterogeneity: zoonoses may have a significant and debilitating effect on some communities but not on...

Natural landscapes and the health crisis. This book chapter focuses on how landscapes can be harmful to human health and wellbeing and suggests possible strategies for reparation and to regain a reciprocal relationship with landscapes. Climate change, Indigenous practices, and ecological grief are discussed, as well as health risks from...

Climate change and human heat stress exposure in sub-Saharan Africa. The sub-Saharan Africa region has been affected by multifaceted interrelated challenges including climate change risks, environmental degradation, political crises, demographic, and food security. The region is geographically exposed to and heavily depends on heat stress-sensitive livelihood and...

Zoonotic diseases: a one health perspective. The emergence and re-emergence of infectious diseases including zoonoses and persistence of neglected zoonotic diseases threaten the global health and economy of rural societies now more than any time in the history of humanity. Animals are the main reservoirs of zoonotic disease agents, and...

Food safety and methods to ensure food security in the face of climate change. Serious social, economic, and ecological consequences of climate change due to the high levels of greenhouse gases (GHGs) in our atmosphere resulting from a wide range of human activities including the burning of fossil fuels and land use have impacted weather events world over. Extreme weather...
