Description

Conservation medicine focuses on the cross-over between ecosystem, animal and human health. Conservation biology emerged as a "crisis" discipline in the 1980s at the interface between ecology, environmental policy and management; and work in the biomedical and veterinary sciences is now being folded into conservation biology, to explore the connections between animal and human health. It traces the environmental sources of pathogens and pollutants in order to develop a rounded, interdisciplinary understanding of the ecological causes of changes in human and animal health, and the consequences of diseases to populations and ecological communities.

Review quote

Conservation Medicine brings together an impressive group of experts from diverse specialties (medicine, veterinary science, conservation biology, epidemiology, parasitology, public health, and others) to examine the links among human health, wildlife health, and ecosystem health. [The book] goes a long way toward teaching us to analyze health problems in ecological context If the book gets the attention it deserves, it will inspire researchers, funders, policy makers, and the general public in both developed and developing countries to become involved in finding collaborative solutions to the conservation crisis.
