Wildlife health and disease
Dr Victoria Ogily reviewed two interesting papers about amphibian disease:
Paper 1. Assessing the long-term
impact of Ranavirus infection in wild Common Frog populations by Teacher et al. (2010).
Rob Williams discussed some of the policies that are relevant to containing the spread of invasive species and diseases that can affect native wildlife.
Defra’s Check, Clean, Dry initiative is designed to encourage everyone who works in water or enjoys water sports to help prevent the spread of invasive species between water bodies. There is lots of information about the campaign here.
