Abstract

When bovine tuberculosis (bTB) circulates in a multi-host system, it is paramount to characterize the interactions between wildlife and livestock as they may lead to interspecific transmission. To that purpose, we undertook a 1-year survey in 25 farms located in an infected area in the Burgundy...

Abstract

Human modification of landscapes is one of the greatest threats facing biodiversity worldwide and conversion of native habitat to agricultural land is widely perceived as contributing significantly to biodiversity declines. However, some species have proven to be adaptable to human-induced habitat...

Abstract

Mycobacterium bovis has a wide range of hosts. Usually, it affects cattle; however, it has been detected in humans and many wildlife reservoirs such as cervids, badgers, feral pigs, brushtail possums, and buffaloes. Persistence in wildlife has made it difficult to eradicate M. bovis, even in...

Abstract

Interactions among wildlife are likely to play a role in the transmission of diseases caused by multi-host pathogens such as Mycobacterium bovis, the agent of bovine tuberculosis. Although France is officially free from bovine tuberculosis, some areas are still harboring infection in cattle and...

Abstract

Bovine tuberculosis (bTB) causes substantial economic losses to cattle farmers and taxpayers in the British Isles. Disease management in cattle is complicated by the role of the European badger (Meles meles) as a host of the infection. Proactive, non-selective culling of badgers can reduce the...

Abstract

In the UK and the Republic of Ireland, the European badger (Meles meles) is a maintenance host for Mycobacterium bovis, and may transmit the infection to cattle causing bovine tuberculosis (TB). Vaccination of badgers using an injectable Bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG) vaccine is undertaken in some...

Abstract

Bovine tuberculosis is an important disease affecting the UK livestock industry. Controlling bovine tuberculosis (TB) is made more complex by the presence of a wildlife host, the Eurasian badger, Meles meles. Repeated large-scale badger culls implemented in the Randomised Badger Culling Trial...

Abstract

Bovine TB (bTB) is endemic in Irish cattle and has eluded eradication despite considerable expenditure, amid debate over the relative roles of badgers and cattle in disease transmission. Using a comprehensive dataset from Northern Ireland (>10,000 km2; 29,513 cattle herds), we investigated...

Abstract

The incidence of Mycobacterium bovis, the causative agent of bovine tuberculosis, has been increasing in UK cattle herds resulting in substantial economic losses. The European badger (Meles meles) is implicated as a wildlife reservoir of infection. One likely route of transmission to cattle is...

Abstract

Bovine Tuberculosis (TB) is a major problem for the agricultural industry in several countries. TB can be contracted and spread by species other than cattle and this can cause a problem for disease control. In the UK and Ireland, badgers are a recognised reservoir of infection and there has been...
