host and viral traits predict zoonotic spillover from mammals.the majority of human emerging infectious diseases are zoonotic, with viruses that originate in wild mammals of particular concern (for example, hiv, ebola and sars). understanding patterns of viral diversity in wildlife and determinants of successful cross-species transmission, or spillover, are therefore key goals for pandemic surveillance programs. however, few analytical tools exist to identify which host species are likely to harbour the next human virus, or which viruses can cross species ...201728636590
african horse sickness and african carnivores.african horse sickness (ahs) is a disease that affects equids, and is principally transmitted by culicoides spp. that are biological vectors of ahs viruses (ahsv). the repeated spread of ahsv from sub-saharan africa to the middle east, northern africa and the iberian peninsula indicate that a better understanding of ahs epizootiology is needed. african horse sickness has long been known to infect and cause mortality among domestic dogs that ingest virus contaminated meat, but it is uncertain wha ...19958604545
