Conservation medicine is an emerging discipline, focussing on the intersection of ecosystem health, animal health, and human health. Work in the biomedical and veterinary sciences is now being folded into conservation biology; to explore the connections between animal and human health; trace the environmental sources of pathogens and pollutants; develop an understanding of the ecological causes of changes in human and animal health; and understand the consequences of diseases to populations and ecological communities. Conservation Medicine defines this new discipline. It examines ecological health issues from various standpoints, including the emergence and resurgence of infectious disease agents; the increasing impacts of toxic chemicals and hazardous substances; and the health implications of habitat fragmentation and degradation and loss of biodiversity. It will provide a framework to examine the connections between the health of the planet and the health of all species and challenge practitioners and students in the health sciences and natural sciences to think about new, collaborative ways to address ecological health concerns.

Review:


Conservation Medicine brings together an impressive group of experts from diverse specialties (medicine, veterinary science, conservation biology, epidemiology, parasitology, public health, and others) to examine the links among human health, wildlife health, and ecosystem health. [The book] goes a long way toward teaching us to analyze health problems in ecological context If the book gets the attention it deserves, it will inspire researchers, funders, policy makers, and the general public in both developed and developing countries to become involved in finding collaborative solutions to the conservation crisis. " --Environmental Health Perspectives

Conservation medicine focuses on the cross-over between ecosystem, animal and human health.
