Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue focuses on the epidemiology of zoonotic diseases, which could be considered a vast scientific field, although nowadays new and relevant aspects are emerging in the epidemiology of infectious diseases along the interface of the human–animal environment.

Several emerging zoonoses, like vector-borne diseases, are changing their transmission patterns or extending their geographical areas, due to changes of climatic conditions, human-induced environmental changes, the globalisation of animal and goods trade, or the increase of human migrations and travellers. In addition, environmental changes in African and South American forests are more frequently exposing humans and domestic animals to infectious diseases with wild reservoirs. In recent years, several studies have been conducted that have attempted to identify the main drivers of infection and clarify the most important risk factors influencing the emergence, transmission, and spread of new and (re)-emergent zoonotic diseases. Today, the need to outline the knowledge and future challenges in this field is urgent. With this general aim, this Special Issue wants to provide a synthetic picture of the current knowledge on the epidemiological patterns and the changes we have recently observed for zoonoses with relevance for public and animal health.

Kind regards,

Dr. Paolo Calistri
