Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The interface between humans, animals, and the environments we share can be a source of diseases that impact public health and the social and economic well-being of the world population. This Special Issue will promote a holistic research approach towards the characterization and management of foodborne zoonoses in a One Health approach. This Special Issue welcomes research and reviews aiming towards a better understanding of the interdependent relationship between foodborne zoonoses and production animals we depend on for our food, livelihoods, and well-being, as well as with the environments we live and work in together. Research on farm-level biosecurity, food chain risk factors, and farm-to-fork baseline data on the prevalence of foodborne pathogens and their antimicrobial resistance and (molecular) epidemiology are also of interest and we encourage such submissions.
