- Community ecology and disease risk: lizards, squirrels, and the Lyme disease spirochete in California, USADaniel J Salkeld
Department of Environmental Science, Policy and Management, University of California, Berkeley, California 94720, USA
Ecology 91:293-8. 2010..Species identity is therefore critical in understanding and determining the local disease ecology...
- Plague outbreaks in prairie dog populations explained by percolation thresholds of alternate host abundanceDaniel J Salkeld
Woods Institute for the Environment and Department of Anthropology, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305, USA
Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 107:14247-50. 2010..Furthermore, abundance thresholds of alternate hosts may be a key phenomenon determining outbreaks of disease in many multihost-disease systems...
- Distribution of the Lyme disease spirochete Borrelia burgdorferi in naturally and experimentally infected western gray squirrels (Sciurus griseus)Sarah Leonhard
Department of Environmental Science, Policy, and Management, University of California, Berkeley, CA 94720, USA
Vector Borne Zoonotic Dis 10:441-6. 2010..Since spirochetes could be detected in squirrels 7-21 months postinfection, we conclude that S. griseus can infect Ixodes pacificus ticks with B. burgdorferi s.s. trans-seasonally...
- Effects of weather and plague-induced die-offs of prairie dogs on the fleas of northern grasshopper miceDaniel J Salkeld
Department of Environmental Science, Policy and Management, University of California, Berkeley, CA 94720, USA
J Med Entomol 46:588-94. 2009..Flea loads changed in response to both environmental temperature and rainfall. After plague-induced prairie dog die-offs, flea loads and likelihood of infestation were unchanged for P. exilis, but T. fotus loads declined...

Am J Trop Med Hyg 79:535-40. 2008..burgdorferi trans-seasonally. Non-native eastern gray squirrels (Sciurus carolinensis) and fox squirrels (Sciurus niger) were infrequently infected with B. burgdorferi...

- A meta-analysis suggesting that the relationship between biodiversity and risk of zoonotic pathogen transmission is idiosyncraticDaniel J Salkeld
Woods Institute for the Environment and Department of Anthropology, Stanford University, Stanford, CA, 94305, USA California Department of Public Health, Vector Borne Disease Section, 850 Marina Bay Parkway, Richmond, CA, 94804, USA
Ecol Lett 16:679-86. 2013..Our results suggest that disease risk is more likely a local phenomenon that relies on the specific composition of reservoir hosts and vectors, and their ecology, rather than patterns of species biodiversity...
