Wildlife Disease and Health in Conservation

Friday, October 18, 2024 - 12:00am

Most existing and emerging infectious diseases have their origin in animal populations. In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic the need to understand the cause and impacts of wildlife diseases, as well as how to manage them, has only become increasingly salient.   

Join us for a live, hybrid Chats in the Stacks book talk with Robin Radcliffe, associate professor of practice in Wildlife and Conservation Medicine in the Veterinary School, and David Jessup, former senior wildlife veterinarian of the California Department of Fish and Game and former executive manager of the Wildlife Disease Association, for a discussion of their new coedited volume Wildlife Disease and Health in Conservation (Johns Hopkins University Press, 2023). The book combines theory and practice, offering cutting-edge scientific information to aid in planning for, responding to, and conducting research on these serious challenges to both human and wildlife health, and to conservation efforts around the world.
