booktitle = "Animal Biodiversity and Emerging Diseases Prediction and Prevention", TY - GEN T1 - The effect of habitat fragmentation and species diversity loss on hantavirus prevalence in Panama Emerging infectious diseases (EIDs) of free-living wild animals can be classified into three major groups on the basis of key epizootiological criteria: (i) EIDs associated with “spill-over” from domestic animals to wildlife populations living in proximity; (ii) EIDs related directly to human intervention, via host or parasite translocations; and (iii) EIDs with no overt human or domestic Current and future diagnostic molecular techniques offer new opportunities to identify tools for the management and possible treatment of diseases in imperiled species. Volume , Issue 1 Animal Biodiversity and Emerging Diseases Prediction and Prevention Approximately 20% of novel emerging infectious diseases (EIDs) and 50% of emerging and re-emerging zoonotic diseases have been attributed to land-use change.

Nature Approximately three fourths of human emerging infectious diseases are caused by zoonotic pathogens ().These include agents responsible for global mortality (e.g., HIV-1 and -2, influenza virus) and others that cause limited deaths but result in high case-fatality rates and for which no effective therapies or vaccines exist (e.g., Ebola virus, hantaviruses, Nipah virus, severe acute respiratory
