Abstract

Bovine Tuberculosis due to Mycobacterium bovis (bTb) is a good example of an eradication process undergone in France since the 1950's. After an initial phase of relatively rapid decline in the number of infected farms in 50 years from an annual prevalence of about 25% to less than 0.02%, France was ...
