Abstract

Demographic buffering allows populations to persist by compensating for fluctuations in vital rates, including disease-induced mortality. Using long-term data on a badger (Meles meles Linnaeus, 1758) population naturally infected with Mycobacterium bovis, we built an integrated population model to...

Abstract

Landscape epidemiological studies often produce maps that visualise spatial variation in disease incidence or prevalence. Within England and Wales a component of the spatial variation in the incidence of bovine tuberculosis (bTB) is endemic infection in the European badger (Meles meles) population. ...

Abstract

The European Badger (Meles meles) has been implicated in the epidemiology of bovine tuberculosis in cattle populations in the Republic of Ireland. Badger populations have been subject to a culling regime in areas with chronic histories of bTB cattle herd breakdowns. Removal data from 2004 to 2010...

Abstract

Seine-Maritime, Côte-d'Or and Dordogne/Charente are areas of high prevalence of bovine tuberculosis (bTB) in cattle or wildlife. In these areas, surveys have been carried out to monitor the presence of bTB in badgers, a species considered as a bTB maintenance host in British Islands. Post- mortem...

AbstractFull Text

A survey of bovine tuberculosis (TB) in badgers killed by cars has been ongoing since 1999, with an annual mean of 78 badgers submitted for laboratory examination. The sample prevalence was 20.0% and temporal trends were similar to those of bovine herd prevalence. TB in badgers and surrounding...
