Disease Ecology in a Changing World: Why Should We Care in Texas?
Please Join TWA and Texas A&M AgriLife Extension for the next Wildlife for Lunch webinar!
When: Thursday, September 15th, 2016, from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm CDT
Topic: "Disease Ecology in a Changing World: Why Should We Care in Texas?"
For several emergent zoonotic diseases (diseases in wildlife that can infect humans), human driven changes in landscapes and in animal communities have created scenarios for increased human risk of exposure to pathogens. And, contrary to most people beliefs, there are several zoonotic pathogens in Texas that deserve our attention. The Disease Ecology Laboratory at Texas State University, is conducting research in the ecology of several pathogens such as Hantaviruses, Trypanosomes, and tick-borne diseases. This webinar will cover these examples and other questions being addressed by the lab and how they relate to landowners, wildlife enthusiasts, and outdoor recreationists in Texas.
