The Primate Zoonoses : Culture Change and Emerging Diseases, Hardback Book


This book offers an accessible and up-to-date reference on primate zoonoses.

Recent years have witnessed a rise in human diseases zoonotically transferred from animals, with wild primates implicated in the spread of numerous newly emerging infections.

The authors go beyond simply providing an inventory of diseases, helping readers to understand how and why they are transmitted.

Important consideration is given to the contemporary cultural and ecological factors involved.
