  • 13. Spread of Disease• Urbanization and habitat destruction has lead to increased contact between humans and wildlife• Cross species disease transfers have occurred as humans move to what was forest http://www.foe.co.uk/imgs/bulldozer_forest2.jpg Milan Genovese
  • 14. Disease in Primates• Some primate diseases that have crossed species include: -Nipah Virus - Ebola - HIV http://us.123rf.com/400wm/400/400/isselee/isselee0909/isselee090900135/5570122-handshake-between- human-hand-and-monkey-hand-mixed-breed-between-chimpanzee-and-bonobo--20-years-old.jpg Milan Genovese
