Why ‘zoonotica’?January 30, 2011
It wasn’t long into my undergrad course that I realised the diseases that hold the most fascination for me are those that cross species barriers and transfer from animals to humans or vice versa. The bugs that cause these diseases are all around us: in the meat we eat; the wildlife we encounter; and the pets we share our lives with.
Over the course of this blog I intend to focus on these zoonoses, the bugs themselves and how they interact with us and (other) animals.
I’m always happy to take suggestions for topics – just comment below.
