  • Why I have to introduce the disease transmission model is that it will help you to better understand the basic epidemiological background we wiill cover in the next sessions.
  • Here is one example of infected frog by chytrid fungus. Basically, the fungus infects the skin of frogs destroying its structure and function. In the next section, David will cover more detail in this interaction. In the introduction, we will be prepared the basic definition of the those.

  • Persistence of the emerging pathogenBatrachochytrium dendrobatidis outsidethe amphibian host greatly increases theprobability of host extinctionKate M. Mitchell. Proc. R. Soc. B (2008) 275, 329–334“The model predicted that the longer thatB. dendrobatidis was able to persist in water, either due to an increased zoospore lifespan or saprobicreproduction, the more likely it was that it could cause local B. bufo extinction (defined as decrease below athreshold level).”

  • Emerging infectious diseases (EIDs) of free-living wild animals can be classiÞed into three major groupson the basis of key epizootiological criteriaWith agents from reservoir animal populations (often domesticated species) to sympatric wildlife.The translocation of wildlife for conservation, agriculture, and hunting occurs on a global scale, with an inherent risk of exposure of wildlife species to exotic infectious agentsCorrelations between emergence of human diseases (such as cryptosporidiosis, hemorrhagic fevers, cholera, and malaria) and weather patterns [flooding, the El Nin˜o Southern Oscillation (ENSO)] are common (36, 37).
  • Spill-over is a particular threat to endangered species, because the presence of infected reservoir hosts can lower the pathogen’s threshold density and lead to local (population) extinction (8, 9, 11). Populations of the African wild dog (Lycaon pictus) have been declining since the 1960s. This species is now endangered and, with a fragmented population of less than 5000, is susceptible to stochastic events such as disease outbreaks. Wild dogs became extinct in the in 1991, concurrent with epizootic canine distemper in sympatric domestic dogs (18, 24).
  • The introduction of potential hosts into new geographic areas without co-introduction of pathogens can alsoresult in disease emergence. For example, varroasis, a disease of honeybees caused by the mite Varroa jacobsoni, spread globally (except Australia) after the European honeybee (Apis mellifera) was introduced into Asia (28).
  • IUCN: International Union for Conservation of Nature
  • nutrient and water cycling, soil formation and retention, resistance against invasive species, plant pollination, climate regulation, and pest and pollution controlThe monetary value of goods and services provided by ecosystems is estimated to amount to some 33 trillion dollars per year – nearly twice the global production resulting from human activities.

    62. 62. Conclusions<br />The intensity of ponds alteration for livestock and the amount of vegetation are positively related to the ATV incidence<br />62<br />
    63. 63. The Big Picture: Implications of Extinction<br />{Clip Art from Microsoft 2007}<br />Laura Goodfield<br />63<br />
    64. 64. The relationships between species in an ecosystem are varied but usually tie species together in a unique and complex manner.<br />(Lavigne. 2007)<br />64<br />
    65. 65. Keystone species can be defined as species that contribute more proportionally to their ecosystem than they take up biomass.<br />[Dovel 2008]<br />65<br />
    66. 66. Endangered Species have been determined by the IUCN and added to the Red List.<br />[Table adapted from IUCN, 2009]<br />66<br />

    69. 69. High levels of endangered and extinct species inversely correlate to biodiversity levels.<br />[IUCN 2008]<br />69<br />
    70. 70. Implications<br /><ul><li>Food supply </li></ul>About 100 million metric tons of aquatic organisms, including fish, mollusks and crustaceans are taken from the wild every year and represent a vital contribution to world food security<br /><ul><li>Medicinal Supply</li></ul>An estimated 50,000-70,000 plant species are used in traditional and modern medicine worldwide<br />70<br />
    71. 71. Consequences of Change in Biodiversity will directly affect us and the world around us.<br />(F.S. Chapin III et al, 2000)<br />71<br />
    72. 72. Summary<br />Disease transmission models suggest that extinction could be possible if host contact is not homogenous or disease transmission is not dependant on density.<br />The newly emergent pathogen Bd is appears to be able to cause extinction in wild populations of amphibians.<br />ATV infection was positively related with anthropic modifications and with habitat fragmentation.<br />Although extinction is natural, the loss of biodiversity can result in series of changes, most of which affect us negatively.<br />
