Up to 11 million tons of wild meat are harvested per year across the globe, posing a major biodiversity threat for hundreds of species. Landscape change and biodiversity loss cause major shifts in the ecology of pathogens and their vectors. Global warming has also triggered modifications in the density and distribution of wildlife host species and disease reservoirs, expanding the geographic occurrence of infectious diseases. In the talk, Robert will delve into what these developments mean for human health and discuss a path forward.
The talk will take place on Zoom (registration required)
