Viral and Bacterial Diseases at the Bird-Human Interface

Special issue from Infection Ecology & Epidemiology

Deadline for submissions:
25 September 2019

Details of the special issue

You are invited to contribute a research article to Infection Ecology & Epidemiology's special issue on Viral and Bacterial Diseases at the Bird-Human Interface.

Understanding interactions between birds and humans is important in combating zoonotic disease. In a rapidly changing world, migratory birds play a role - together with the expanding trade of livestock - in the dispersal and emergence of new infections. Birds form the natural reservoir of different viral and bacterial diseases, and are usually potential carriers of pathogenic microorganisms via their ticks.

The goal of this special issue is to serve as a collection of the current knowledge on different pathogens at the bird-human interface, ranging from molecular biology to clinical medicine.

Guest Editor: Mahmoud Naguib, Zoonosis Science Centre, Uppsala University, Sweden
