International Movement of Wild Animals in Relation to the Dissemination of Zoonoses

Abstract

The awareness of the danger of wildlife reservoirs of infections transmissible to man is generally inadequate. Systems of agents and host animal species can be grouped into diseases spread through transport of wildlife species by man and those spread through natural movement of animals over long and moderate distances. The secondary effect of migration of wildlife on other animal populations (e.g., arthropods) playing a role in the transmission of diseases can complicate epidemiological conditions. The various conditions of transmission of often most dangerous infections are discussed with respect to possibilities of surveillance and control.

Zusammenfassung

Die von Erregerreservoiren beim Wild für den Mensch ausgehenden Gefahren werden generell unterschätzt. Erreger-Wirt-Systeme lassen sich nach Krankheiten gruppieren, die durch den Tansport von Wild durch den Menschen verbreitet werden, oder durch die natürliche Wanderung von Tieren über weite oder mittlere Distanzen. Das Seuchengeschehen wird oft kompliziert da wandernde Tiergruppen Veränderungen in anderen Tierpopulationen nach sich ziehen können (z.B. in Arthropoden), die als Aeuchenträger eine Rolle spielen. Die Bedingungen für die Ubertragung oft sehr gefalirlicher Krankheiten werden im Hinblick auf die Möglichkeiten der Überwachung und Bekämpfung diskutiert.
