Summary
In recent years, species and ecosystems have been threatened by many anthropogenic factors manifested in local and global declines of populations and species. Although we consider conservation medicine an emerging field, the concept is the result of the long evolution of transdisciplinary thinking within the health and ecological sciences and the better understanding of the complexity within these various fields of knowledge. Conservation medicine was born from the cross fertilization of ideas generated by this new transdisciplinary design. It examines the links among changes in climate, habit

Conservation medicine: ontogeny of an emerging discipline -- Ecohealth: connecting ecology, health, and sustainability -- One Health, One Medicine -- Biodiversity and human health -- An ecosystem service of biodiversity: the protection of human health against infectious disease -- Parasite conservation, conservation medicine and ecosystem health -- Stress and immunosuppression as factors in the decline and extinction of wildlife populations: concepts, evidence, and challenges -- Part two: Anthropogenic change and conservation medicine. Climate change and infectious disease dynamics -- Wildlife health in a changing north: a model for global environmental change -- Habitat fragmentation and infectious disease ecology -- Wildlife trade and the spread of disease -- Bushmeat and infectious disease emergence -- Human migration, border controls, and infectious disease emergence -- Part three: Emerging infectious diseases and conservation medicine. Are bats exceptional viral reservoirs? -- SARS: a case study for factors driving disease emergence -- H5N1 highly pathogenic avian influenza: breaking the rules in disease emergence -- Bartonellosis: an emerging disease of humans, domestic animals, and wildlife -- Brucella ceti and Brucella pinnipedialis: infections in marine mammals -- Infectious cancers in wildlife -- From protozoan infection in monarch butterflies to colony collapse disorder in bees: are emerging infectious diseases proliferating in the insect world? -- Fungal diseases in neotropical forests disturbed by humans -- Emerging infectious diseases in fisheries and aquaculture -- Southern sea otters as sentinels for land-sea pathogens and pollutants -- Part four: Ecotoxicology and conservation medicine. Ecotoxicology: bridging wildlife, humans, and ecosystems -- Wildlife toxicology: environmental contaminants and their national and international regulation -- Marine biotoxins: emergence of harmful algal blooms as health threats to marine wildlife -- Beluga from the St. Lawrence estuary: a case study of cancer and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons
  • Part five: Place-based conservation medicine. Sense and serendipity: conservation and management of bison in Canada -- Pathogens, parks, and people: the role of bovine tuberculosis in South African conservation -- Disease ecology and conservation of ungulates, wild rabbits, and the Iberian lynx in the Mediterranean forest -- The Kibale EcoHealth Project: Exploring connections among human health, animal health, and landscape dynamics in Western Uganda -- Conservation medicine in Brazil: case studies of ecological health in practice -- Linking conservation of biodiversity and culture with sustainable health and wellness: the Itzamma model and global implications for healing across cultures -- Biological diversity and human health: using plants and traditional ethnomedical knowledge to improve public health and conservation programs in Micronesia -- Part six: Applied techniques of conservation medicine. Human health in the biodiversity hotspots: applications of geographic information system technology and implications for conservation -- Determining when parasites of amphibians are conservation threats to their hosts: methods and perspectives -- Strategies for wildlife disease surveillance -- Wildlife health monitoring systems in North America: from sentinel species to public policy -- Epidemiologic investigation of infectious pathogens in marine mammals: the importance of serum banks and statistical analysis -- Sorta situ: the new reality of management conditions for wildlife populations in the absence of "wild" spaces -- Modeling population viability and extinction risk in the presence of parasitism -- Using mathematical models in a unified approach to predicting the next emerging infectious disease
