  10. Recent animal disease outbreaks and their impact on human populations

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Jeff B Bender, William Hueston, Michael Osterholm

    There are very positive and strong connections between animals and humans, but also reasons for concern because about 61% of all human pathogens are zoonotic. The increase in new diseases, is due to increases in world trade, animal translocation, ecological disruptions, climate change,...

  11. Dispelling the myths of animal-assisted care

  12. Anchor down or hunker down: an experimental study on zebra mussels' response to predation risk from crayfish

    | Contributor(s):: Marcin Czarnoleski, Tomas Müller, Justyna Kierat, Landon Gryczkowski, Lucjan Chybowski

    Predation cues influence the strength of byssal attachment in bivalves. In zebra mussels, Dreissena polymorpha, anchorage increases in response to nonforaging roach, Rutilus rutilus, but decreases in response to artificially crushed conspecifics, and it remains unaltered by nonforaging crayfish....

  13. Use of comparative genomics approaches to characterize interspecies differences in response to environmental chemicals: Challenges, opportunities, and research needs

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Sarah L Burgess-Herbert, Susan Y Euling

    A critical challenge for environmental chemical risk assessment is the characterization and reduction of uncertainties introduced when extrapolating inferences from one species to another. The purpose of this article is to explore the challenges, opportunities, and research needs surrounding...

  18. Pets as a Source of Zoonotic Disease: An Investigation into Knowledge, Attitudes and Practices Related to Pet Contact and associated Zoonoses in Low and High Disease-risk Households

    | Contributor(s):: Jason Stull

    The mental and physical benefits of pet ownership are well established; however, pets can also transmit pathogens to people, with children, elderly, pregnant and immunocompromised individuals at greatest risk of disease. Little is known about the public’s knowledge and practices related to...

  19. A critical review of horse-related risk: a research agenda for safer mounts, riders and equestrian cultures

    | Contributor(s):: Thompson, K., McGreevy, P., McManus, P.

    While the importance of improving horse-related safety seems self-evident, no comprehensive study into understanding or reducing horse-related risk has been undertaken. In this paper, we discuss four dimensions of horse-related risk: the risk itself, the horse, the rider and the culture in which...

  20. Ethics of dissent: a plea for restraint in the scientific debate about the safety of GM crops

    | Contributor(s):: Mampuys, R., Brom, F. W. A.

    Results of studies that cast doubt on the safety of genetically modified (GM) crops have been published since the first GM crop approval for commercial release. These 'alarming studies' challenge the dominant view about the adequacy of current risk assessment practice for genetically modified...
