  • Veterinary Epidemiology in public health.
    Journal of Veterinary Epidemiology, 2009
    Co-Authors: Shigeki Yamamoto
    Abstract:

    Epidemiology is basically the science for human population. Veterinary Epidemiology has much wider targets to cover, for example various kinds of animals, environment, quality of life, etc. Veterinary Epidemiology has not been set as an independent unit of veterinary school, but now it becomes an important part of veterinary science.Veterinary Epidemiology covers food safety, zoonosis, symbiosis of human and animals, environmental health.Society of Veterinary Epidemiology has a responsibility to contribute to Japanese society through the activity to promote Epidemiology into veterinarian

  • Veterinary Epidemiology
    Equine Internal Medicine: Second Edition, 2003
    Co-Authors: William J. Saville, Thomas E. Wittum
    Abstract:

    The author describes the specifics of veterinary Epidemiology, in particular its domain and objectives. The large diversity of data sources are partly limited by the lack of standardized nomenclature and registries in many animal species. Even if veterinary Epidemiology benefits from methods developed in the last thirty years in human Epidemiology, it differs from human Epidemiology by: the broad spectrum of animal species and its differences in longevity, pathology and genetics, the extend of control measures available and their direct effect on the Epidemiology of the diseases, the priority of cost efficacy of disease control and epidemiological surveillance. The future of veterinary Epidemiology lays in new areas, such as herd management and economics, genetic selection and molecular biochemistry, and geriatric Epidemiology in pets.

  • Exploiting Genetic Information to Trace Plant Virus Dispersal in Landscapes
    Annual Review of Phytopathology, 2017
    Co-Authors: Coralie Picard, Kirstyn Brunker, Karine Berthier, Samuel Soubeyrand, Emmanuel Jacquot, Sylvie Dallot, Philippe Roumagnac, Gael Thébaud
    Abstract:

    During the past decade, knowledge of pathogen life history has greatly ben- efited from the advent and development of molecular Epidemiology. This branch of Epidemiology uses informationonpathogen variation at the molec- ular level to gain insights into a pathogen’s niche and evolution and to characterize pathogen dispersal within and between host populations. Here, we review molecular Epidemiology approaches that have been developed to trace plant virus dispersal in landscapes. In particular, we highlight how virus molecular Epidemiology, nourished with powerful sequencing technologies, can provide novel insights at the crossroads between the blooming fields of landscape genetics, phylogeography, and evolutionary Epidemiology.We present existing approaches and their limitations and contributions to the understanding of plant virus Epidemiology.
